Cucuzza – Stew
Ghiotta di Cucuzza
by James Belardo

The cucuzza, a simple summer squash from Sicily. It’s actually a pretty incredible plant, typically growing on trellises as the squash can grow up to (and beyond) 6-feet long! One cucuzza can be used to feed quite a few people. Louis Prima wrote a song about it in the 50s celebrating cucuzza, and it was a hit! My Cucuzza

Having an abundance of this vegetable created a challenge, we had to come up with different ways to prepare it. We’re looking forward to this years harvest! Here’s a simple and tasty vegetarian stew, try it when you get a chance! Cucuzza – Stew
