In Italy, zucchini is served in a variety of ways, in the pan, in the oven, boiled or fried, alone or in combination with other ingredients. At home and in some restaurants, it’s possible to eat the flowers as well, cooked in deep-frying, known as fiori di zucca. We have chosen to stuff ours today.

    I love zucchini but my kids do not. I’ve been looking for an idea to get them to try it. I think this adds some flavors they love with it so it may just be the answer I was looking for. Pinning for later and stumbling. 🙂
