I love this recipe! It has to be one of my favorite summer meals. It is quick, light but filling, healthy, and has fantastic flavor! The combination of the fresh rosemary and lemon zest is perfect. And who doesn’t like grilled zucchini?! This is quick and easy enough to throw together during the week, but tastes special enough to be served to guests, which I have definitely done before! It’s a win-win!
