    I did not add the red pepper flakes because I knew daughter wouldn't like it. Will add it when just making for me.

    This was easy, tasty, and healthy. The red pepper flakes give it a mild kick. Will make again.

    I used Italian dressing instead of olive oil, but did everything else the same. Tasted great! Will make again.

    This was delicious and so easy to make. I halved the recipe for just 2 servings and it was a great blend of smoky flavor from the grill, tart from the lemon, a hint of heat from the red pepper flake and the creaminess of the zucchini itself. A definite keeper.
