Patelli Zucchini

Any event at our house would consist of patelli zucchini. My mom is known for these and she often makes a couple of batches for friends for their dinner parties. It’s like a frittata and great as an appetizer.  There’s nothing better than making them from that first summer zucchini harvest from Nonno’s garden.

4 medium zucchini

4 eggs

1 cup of flour

¾ cups of grated cheese

Salt and pepper

4 leaves of chopped basil

  • Slice zucchini (you can use the cheese grater on the big size)
  • Add salt and pepper, let stand for a few minutes
  • Add eggs, cheese whisk with a fork
  • Add flour & basil
  • Mix with fork until a pancake consistency
  • Using a tablespoon to drop the mix into the hot oil- ensure there is enough batter to coat the zucchini
  • Flip once when brown
  • Don’t prick it with a fork as the oil will seep through and make the patties too greasy
  • Place on a paper towel when ready
  • Sprinkle with cheese
  • Serve hot!
