The project started in January and initially I couldn't decide which book to focus on (I have sooo many) until I made Lentil Soup last month, a recipe from Essentials of Classic Italian Cooking by Marcella Hazan. I do sometimes cook from this book but it's the same handful of recipes over and over again.
Look at all of those flags! Those are the recipes I've wanted to make for years(!) but never have. That's about to change.
First up is Frittata with Zucchini and Basil. The author describes a frittata as an "open-faced Italian omelette", the most basic of which is made with eggs and cheese. This one includes onions and zucchini that are cooked slowly until soft and golden, not a quick step, but worth the time involved to develop the flavours of the ingredients. It seemed like a very large amount of zucchini for the number of eggs, but it all cooked down nicely.
This was a particularly delicious way to add vegetables to a meal and was fantastic hot and at room temperature. I will definitely make this again.
I'm linking this with Cookbook Countdown hosted by Kitchen Flavours and Emily's Cooking (Makan2) Foray.
