There are so many wonderful variations to this dish. You can made it with halved cherry tomatoes in addition to or instead of the zucchini. It’s a great one-packet meal served alongside crusty bread. Quinoa tabouli is also an excellent side dish. Spoon some directly into the packets so the grains soak up the sauce, and eat away.

Greek-Style Hummus
There are very few people who don't like hummus. Why? Because hummus is a chameleon and can change its flavoring at the pinch of some garlic or a swirl or a swirl of roasted pepper. That said, what happens when you blend in a few traditional Greek inredients into the creamy spread? A whole lot of authenticity, thats what.  Serve with lightly toasted pita chips or create a Greek bar of sorts and accompany it with things like falafel, sliced meats, tzatziki, pickles and you have yourself a party!
