Yunmmy!!!! Made this to go along with Mama's Beef-A-Roni#70781 and what an easy and tasty dish. I did saute some garlic in the oil before addeing the zucchini but otherwise I followed the instructions. Definately a keeper and another tasty way to fix zucchini. Made for Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup tag game.

Excellent! I didn't have a lemon, so I used fresh orange zest. That worked out fine, but I think lemon zest would be better. This was a quick, easy recipe to make for one person or a crowd.

DEEEELISH! I made it with soy parmesan (tastes like the real thing!) and it was sooo yummy. I really had to made a conscious effort not to eat it all up! But at only 39 cal/serving, I wouldn't even feel that guilty if I'd given into temptation.
