Julia child recipe

I'm making it tonight

Salt it and put in a colander to drain. Press the moisture out with paper towels.

Fry up some bacon. Remove bacon and crumble and set aside.

Cook sliced or diced onions in bacon grease.

When onions are very soft, throw in the zucchini at pretty high heat and sort of stir fry it. It will cook in about 2 min.

Add crumbled bacon at the end and serve.

I have 10 year olds eating it like crazy and asking for the recipe!

Charlie: be a use I'm not sure if you do the bacon thing.... Just onions and olive oil works too.

Red bell peppers are nice in this, too, and add some more color.

Jenny, do you shred the zucchini or? This sounds really good!

Butter a shallow ovenproof dish, layer courgettes and cheese (I use cheddar, you take your pick) and crushed garlic if liked. Scatter home-made or Panco bread crumbs (mixed with some finely grated parmesan if you like) and cook in a medium oven until cooked through and toasty on top. .

Makes a good supper dish (or side dish with grilled meat - yes, I know that doesn't go for you, Charlie)

I found the recipe in an old book of my grandmother's dating from the 1930s. I haven't tried freezing it.

The one thing I'll say about zucchini is that you have to be careful not to overcook it. It goes from just right to mush in about 15 seconds when steaming or grilling, or even when simmering in a sauce (in a sauce I'll usually add it about 5 minutes before turning off the heat). I like it with still a little "bite" to it, so I try to monitor it carefully and take it off the heat just before it's where I want to serve it.

Carmela's Frittata

The ingredients are as they are because I watched Carmela make it and she never weighed anything, it was all done by eyeball!

4 oz fresh breadcrumbs (in Italy bread is never wasted, in one way or the other, bread always gets used up)
3 - 4 eggs
A handful of grated parmesan
Garlic, finely chopped, to taste
About 4 - 5 oz chopped onion
About 6 - 7 oz chopped or sliced zucchini
good quality EVOO, to cover the bottom of the pan.

Salt and pepper

This is a bit like a pancake, but no milk or flour.

Have your pan heated to a medium heat, add the oil, add the chopped onions, then the rosemary, then the breadcrumbs, salt and pepper, garlic, courgettes, beaten eggs, allow to firm up and then, finally, the Parmesan. Put the frittata under the grill to brown and then serve. Serve in wedges.

Okay, so what the heck are "courgettes"? Is that just slices of zucchini?

Yep, courgettes are British for zucchini.

Nice recipe, di. Thanks!
