That Zucchini Spaghetti Stanley Tucci Loves (Spaghetti alla Nerano)
After listening to Stanley Tucci lose his mind about this pasta and calling it life-changing and one of the best things he's ever eaten, I decided I'd give it a try. The results were amazing and the key to getting the toasted sweet taste of the zucchini was deep-frying it!
Recipe Summary test
Use any zucchini from your garden, different types and sizes are fine.
If your deep fryer is small, you can use a Dutch oven instead and fry more at a time.
You can add a clove of minced garlic when making the sauce if you want.
Use grated Provolone del Monoco cheese if you can find it. I used 1/2 Parmesan cheese and 1/2 Toma cheese.
We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. Amount will vary depending on cooking time and temperature, ingredient density, and specific type of oil used.
