This is a dish my grandparents used to make. It is so simple, yet it is so yummy! It is great in the summer and even better with homegrown zucchini.

Zucchini it s good for breakfast too! As an Italian who grew up with this humble dish herself (using the summer zucchini bounty from Grandma s and Mom s plentiful gardens) I can vouch for its satisfying deliciousness. Or maybe I m just swayed by sentimentality. While olive oil is a kitchen staple in this instance I ve always preferred to make this with butter. And while zucchini is a great foundation it needn t stop there. I added onion and minced garlic today but tomatoes and/or mushrooms are great additions as well. To finish I like a sprinkle of freshly grated Parmesan upon serving. Read More

We make this a lot on the weekends I like to add fresh sliced garlic while the zucchini is sautéing sprinkle some oregano and hot pepper flakes to flavor it up. Serve it on a lightly toasted buttered bakery roll and sprinkle with Parmesan. Heaven! Read More

08.13.16 A good simple and quick breakfast to prepare. I like veggies in my eggs but had never tried it with zucchini. I liked it. Added a few sliced tomatoes and a dry English muffin and had a delicious breakfast. (4-stars) Read More

Fried up 1 medium zucchini, then added a chopped tomato and green onion w salt and pepper. Added an egg and some oregano. Nice, especially if I don't want to use cheese. Read More
