This was a big hit and great way to use summer's bountiful zucchini! I did make this all in one pan, adding the onions, garlic, and zucchini together, but I really didn't have any liquid to strain off. Although I added a generous amount of lemon juice, I didn't really notice it. I have never peeled zucchini before, but think that might be what gave it a sort of sweetness, which went nicely with the onion. A lovely, summertime breakfast! Made for ZWT 8.

I scaled this back for 1 serve and was only using 1 pan so I cooked up my zucchini first (left skin on) and then drained that on paper towel and cleaned out pan and then cooked up the onion and garlic amd then proceded as per recipe from step 4 for what was a delicious breakfast though I found the addition of lemon juice strange it was quite pleasant with the zucchini and onion and the herbs. Thank you Baby Kato, made for Went To Market tag game.
