I made this the other day for work and immediately just fell. in. love. It’s so easy, so fresh, and SO healthy, because the last thing we want to worry about is feeling bloaty in our bathing suites, am I right?  OH, and not to mention it’s just a pretty little dinner, wouldn’t you say?

The bright colors of the seasonal vegetables and lemon make this a very appealing plate for your eyes as well as your bellies. Plus, you can change up the vegetables you use to suit your preferences. Hate squash? Don’t use it and sub in something you love instead.

Because isn’t that what life is about, eating stuff we love that makes us feel good? That’s definitely what this dish does to me. Healthy, flavorful and easy. Not to mention, clean up is a breeze! More time for sipping wine on the porch, which is uber important during the summertime, right?

Ohhh Claire! Love the nice surprise, Erin! I love the lemon and rosemary flavor for this. And of course... one skillet recipe! Anything one is fabulous - one skillet, one plate... easy on cleaning. Thanks for the delicious recipe Claire!
