Lemon Potatoes with Courgettes

I made this side dish a few weeks ago, to go with steaks that Randal grilled. I kept some of the potatoes plain for the hubby as he doesn't usually eat courgettes, but even he liked this recipe, so we will definitely be making this again.

1 lb small red potatoes
2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
2 tbsp minced shallot
1 garlic clove, minced
1 1/2 tsp dried marjoram, divided
2 courgettes
1/2 green bell pepper
1/8 cup olive oil

Preheat oven to 400
Boil potatoes for 15 minutes, until tender
While potatoes are boiling, combine courgettes and bell pepper in a large bowl, add 1/2 tsp marjoram, 1 tbsp olive oil and season with salt and pepper
Arrange vegetables in a single layer on a baking sheet and bake for 10-15 minutes until tender
Whisk lemon juice, shallot, garlic, 1 tsp marjoram in a small bowm and gradually whisk in 1/8 cup olive oil and season with salt and pepper and set aside
When potatoes are done, drain and transfer to a medium bowl and add 1/4 tsp marjoram and 1 tbsp olive oil and season with salt and pepper
When vegetables are done, combine with potatoes and toss with the oil and lemon mixture. Serve warm.
