Quick prep: less than 30 minutes. Serve this dish with fresh spring vegetables, such as fresh pod peas or baby snow peas. Pettipan squash work well — these are the little round pale green squashes with a scalloped edge. Given their sweet, mild flavor, they can be sliced paper thin and used in layers in place of the zucchini.
