      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.

      Yumm!!! This is a great recipe!! I love the pairing of zucchini and arugula!!! All of these flavors balanced wonderfully together! I used my box-grater on the zucchini and it was actually fun because it grates really easily and fast! I did use just 1 TBSP butter and substituted olive oil for the other TBSP and it tasted great!! Thanks for this recipe, will definitely make again!!!
