Frittata – Zucchini and Sun-Dried Tomatoes
Frittata – Zucchine e Pomodori Secchi
by James Belardo

I didn’t appreciate the humble Zucchini when I was younger, it was as an adult that I fell in love. The Zucchini is very versatile, you can use the most of the plant. You can grill slices of the ‘fruit’ on the BBQ, make fritters and bake a ‘Zucchini Parmigiana.’ You can also use the blossoms, stuff them with cheese, make fritters and use them in a frittata, as this recipe demonstrates. Oh, you also can also use the leaves!🙂
