Luca: Melanzane e Zucchini

Thank you for your lovely note ...

I wanted to add that almost any recipe that you prepare with eggplant, you can add zucchini ...

1) tomato sauce with eggplant, zucchini, tomatoes, garlic, leek, or onion, or spring onion, Italian spices ...
2) Pasta alla Norma ( fabulous Palermo, Sicilian dish )
3) Fried Zucchini and Fried Eggplant
4) Zucchini Fritters: oval or round shaped fried grated zucchini with eggplant, bread crumbs, and the ingredients one would use to make a meatball ...
5) braised under oven broiler with Modena: zucchini, eggplant, tomato, leek, onion, carrot, and any other veggies one likes
6) besschamella or bechamel: similar to cauliflower or broccoli, use match stick lengthwise sliced zucchini and bake with a lovely besschamella on top in oven ... Combine with another veggie that u do really like ...
7) Pisto Manchego: onion, garlic, tomato, bell pep red, bell pep green, zucchini and eggplant puréed and served with an Egg on Top and crusty great bread for dipping ...

All my best,
Margi.

Absolutely! And you don't even need to watch the video, thanks to all the pix in the text. Is just that I love the sound of Russian language, I'm serious. And now let's find those Leningrad Cowboys/Red Army Choir Kalinka video!

Off topic:
Aha, I see, and I love Italian. The Italian singers, back in the day, were very popular in Russia/Soviet Union. They were more popular than any American or even British rock bands. And when I spent, oh about, half a year in Italy I picked up some Italian, of course I cannot remember a word now, but I still love it.

^^^ What CWS said.

Do you like potato pancakes? You can make zucchini pancakes (& add shredded potatoes, grated parmesan, & onions to the mix, if you like). Shred the zukes (& potatoes) & drain. Add a beaten egg, bread crumbs (cheese & chopped onions). Fry in hot oil on both sides.

Since that thread, I found an interesting recipe for zucchini stuffed w/ little meatballs. (I would top it with tomato sauce and grated parm or mozzarella, instead of tomato soup.) I also like that the zuke is added to the meatballs. (You could make zuke meatballs & serve w/ spaghetti.)

That is true, zucchini pancakes are good, but so is everything else fried.
