A very nice, and light side dish. The lemon did perk up the zucchini. I thought it was a wonderful addition. I did add a sprinkle of fresh chives. Definately a dish to repeat. Thanks for sharing your recipe.

This was easy, and quick! I enjoyed the flavors and it was a nice side dish. I roasted this in the oven with brussel sprouts and served it with a beef stew. Thanks for a tasty dish!
