I planted a garden to give me something to do when the quarantine happened but never imagined that it would produce SO many veggies.

I have had tomatoes, peppers, and squash coming out of my ears! 

I love it. I go out every morning with my coffee to check on my "babies". Yes, I am that crazy woman that talks to her plants.

I am even planting a fall garden to keep it all going.

But, right now, I am faced with a kitchen full of garden goodness and am trying to come up with new ways for us to enjoy it.

We have been noshing on Zucchini Fritters with Bacon and Cheese, Keto Zummus (Zucchini Hummus), Zucchini Pizza Casserole, and Italian Baked Zucchini and Tomatoes, but I wanted a new light, bright, dish to add to our repertoire.

We both love zoodles and they are a great way to enjoy zucchini.

I of course use them as a pasta substitute to stay low carb, topping them with my Copycat Olive Garden Alfredo Sauce is one of our favorite ways to enjoy them.

But on this night we were having some grilled fish so I wanted a dish that would compliment that. Of course, lemon popped into my mind.
