A favorite go-to appetizer at my local Italian eatery, I decided to save myself from enduring a long walk to satisfy my cravings by recreating the dish at home. Oh-so-simple, quick to whip together, few ingredients, yet impressive, also appeals to the vegetarian friends…all the factors for a perfect dinner party dish!…
- 4 Zucchini
- 1/2 cup of sliced almonds
- Pecorino-Romano cheese
- Salt and Pepper
Julienne the zucchini. I like to slice mine into strips/ribbons lengthwise, then cut it crosswise by hand into matchsticks using my knife.
Next toast the sliced almonds in a generous amount of EVOO, once lightly browned turn off the heat and let the zucchini soften just a few moments with the heat of the almonds by tossing/mixing into the almonds in the pan. Add salt and ground pepper.
Top with shaved pecorino-romano cheese before serving. Bon appetite!
