This is so easy and quick to prepare-I love the method! It was more lemony than we like so in the future will cut that back. Thanks for sharing!

Very Cool! I am on a zucchini kick this week and this was such a new and unusal way to prepare I had to try. I may use this in place of pasta in some dishes this summer when my garden goes into over drive!

This was so good. I added about one teaspoon of balsamic vinegar as I was sauteeing the zucchini and also some black pepper. The flavor was excellent. I'll be making this alot.
