Broil garden-fresh zucchini and spread it with a buttery herb topping for an easy side dish.
INGREDIENTS (for 4 servings):
- 3 tablespoons butter (no substitutes), softened
- 1/4 cup finely chopped green onions
- 2 tablespoons minced fresh rosemary
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice
- 1/2 teaspoon grated lemon peel
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper

In a bowl, combine the first seven ingredients; set aside. Cut zucchini lengthwise into 1/2-in. slices. Place on a broiler pan coated with nonstick cooking spray.
