  • 2 Tbsp butter, divided

  5. Reduce heat to low, add sauce to pan, swirl around for about 30 seconds to slightly cook garlic, then add all veggies back to pan, tossing around for a final minute. Taste test veggies for seasoning and adjust as needed.

  6. Move all veggies to plate, and scoop all sauce and garlic out, topping on veggies.

  7. Increase heat to medium and add lemon slices, sear about 1 minute/side, then plate with veggies for garnish and serve immediately.
