Summer on a plate! I'm so jealous you can get those lovely Romanesco zucchini. I miss them so much. Around here we only have the dark green kind that I mistake for cucumbers all the time, lol!

Simona Carini

I wonder what it takes to convince farmers to grow something a bit different. I guess they are worried people would not like the novelty. Here the Costata Romanesco is popular and I also find yellow zucchini. My husband does the same :)

I am totally there with you on the fresh veggie bit. Looks delicious! That's my kind of casserole!

Simona Carini

Thank you, Debra :)

Great way to use up all the fall harvest still sitting on my counter. Thanks for sharing. I had mixed feelings about the book, glad you stuck with Nellie's story.

Simona Carini

Thank you, Debra :)


Simona, your vegetable still life is just beautiful. So inspiring for a cook!

Simona Carini

Thank you, Claudia. I find vegetables and fruit inspiring as shapes and colors. It's mother nature at work with occasionally some human creativity mixed in :)

Simona Carini

You are welcome, Wendy. Glad to read you've had a good harvest :)

I had a similar dish, actually it topped sautéed fresh pompano, at a restaurant and it was a delicious topping. Thank you for sharing your recipe.

Simona Carini

You are welcome, Karen. I find it is a versatile side dish: it goes well with fish, meat and eggs. I am still finding the ingredients at the farmers market, so I keep making it. Thank you for your comment :)


What, no onions?
Bit dubious about the plum/ peach thing🤔

Simona Carini

Hello Colin, thank you for stopping by and for your comment. Indeed, no onions in this recipe. I like adding fruit: when you roast fruit it adds a nice sweet note to the dish, but if you are not convinced, that ingredient is optional :)
