This is just delicious! The contrast of the zucchini and the arugula is indescribable. The zucchini maintains its unique flavor, while the arugula takes on the lemony aura. I did make a couple of changes since I am unfamiliar with zucchini. I sliced it very thin into rounds and sautéed it to death with the garlic in butter until it was quite limp. Then I added the arugula until wilted and added salt, pepper, lemon zest and lemon juice. Keeper! Thanks for posting.
