This can be a quite simple recipe that I discovered within the Italian e book “Le ricette di Osterie d’Italia”. The zucchini are boiled within the marinade after which left to chill. It could served as a part of a variety of antipasti, or as a contorno (facet dish). I wasn’t doing a complete antipasti unfold, however added some fast pan-fried shrimp to function antipasti. That is a type of recipes that’s higher the subsequent day after it has spent an evening within the fridge.
1 kilo (2.2 lbs) zucchini
3 garlic cloves
120 ml (1/2 cup) dry white wine
120 ml (1/2 cup) white wine vinegar

2 tsp desk salt
Reduce the ends off the zucchini and discard. Chop the zucchini into bite-size items, and place them in a pot.
Thinly slice the onion, and add to the pot.

Add the olive oil.
Add the white wine and vinegar.
Add the salt, then stir till every thing is nicely blended.
Cowl and convey to a boil. Boil for five minutes.
After 5 minutes, flip off the warmth, take away the duvet, and permit to chill within the pot.
Take away the cloves and garlic (if left entire) earlier than serving, however go away them in if you will retailer the zucchini within the fridge to allow them to present extra taste.

One other dish with zucchini and one which I really like very a lot: risotto with zucchini, basil, and pine nuts.
