Recipe Comments & Reviews

Tried this tonight and was it excellent. The lemon juice has a powerful flavor in the finished dish, but is not overbearing and actually accentuates the other flavors. I used red bell peppers in lieu of the squash and served with a beef broth based rice pilaf. Fairly inexpensive, around $13 for a choice sirloin at my local market, easy to prep and cook, and my wife went back for seconds this never happens. Printed the recipe and have it in my cookbook already. We will definitely have this again.
