Zucchine Trifolate… courgettes easy style! (-37 week)

Recipe 77:  On top of the massive work i had this week and the cooking section i try to do at least on saturday or sunday, this week i also participated to the audition for a cooking TV program. I did it just for fun of course but i still had to cook once more. I was really pleased because they liked my dish a  lot but it’s not this the point. The problem is that i had even less time to cook, so the recipe of this week will be again another easy and quick one to prepare.

Ingredients for 2 people: you will just need 3 big courgettes, olive oil, garlic in powder, salt and Parsley.

This is a classic and simple vegetable dish you can cook every night to go with any meat or fish. So clean the  courgettes and cut them in pieces and not slices. Put some oil in a pan but not more than 2 spoons and when hot put the courgettes.

Add some garlic in powder (because i think it can be mixed better on all the vegetables) and salt. When the courgettes start to fried a bit, add some water and let them cook covered. They will became softer and softer and will create a nice sauce.

Let them cook for about half an hour and then serve with some parsley finely chopped!

Buon appetito!

PS. Mamy finalmente le ho cucinate anche io! basta con sempre ‘ste zucchine lesse, meglio trifolate! Anche a Nat sono piaciute tanto! Semplici semplici ma con quel gusto in piu’. E poi questa settimana proprio non avevo tempo di provare altro con anche la torta da cucinare per la trasmissione Tv. Comunque gli e’ piaciuta un sacco! Non sai come se la sono gustata la crema della crostata! La tua ricetta della crema e’ insuperabile!

Patate al forno – Roast potatoes


Recipe 139: This is a basic dish that in my family we use to cook almost every time we invite someone. It’s very easy to do and everyone loves it. On top of that, this is a side order that goes well with any meat or fish you cook.

Here is my recipe:

– Peel the quantity of potatoes you decided to cook and then boil them. You need to take them out of the fire before they get too cooked. I would check after 25 minute trying to insert a fork in them. If this goes, they are ready.

– Then pass them under cold water and cut them in pieces.

– Put them in the oven at 160-180 to finish to cook with oil, salt and fresh rosemary…but also with thyme they are really good.

– If you can, put the grill in your oven and after other 10 -15 minute they will be ready and crunchy. If they are already quite cooked, just put the grill.


PS. Mamy prima di dare la ricetta delle tue polpette ho pensato di inserire la ricetta per le mitiche patate al forno che fai tu. Visto che qui i forni funzionano un po’ come gli pare, ho pensato di aggiustare la ricetta facendo bollire le patate prima. In questo modo dovrebbero venire croccanti ma non secche e magari ci mettono anche un po’ meno tempo a farsi. Che te ne pare?
