Pan Fried Tromboncino Squash

I wanted to plant something different in my garden, something you can’t buy at the supermarket. I found seeds for a tromboncino squash and the picture was awesome. It’s a climbing vine with long, curly fruit.

I thought it looked greats, so I grew some.

The first tasting was just grilled like I would zucchini. It was rather bland and flavorless.

I tried it a little different the next time and it was quite good!! I kinda made a piggy of myself!

tromboncino

You can use this recipe for any summer squash.

Here’s how you do it:

tromboncino

Cut the tromboncino (squash) into medallions. Lay them on paper towels to gently dry them. You want them to fry, not steam.

Sprinkle a pinch of salt on each side.

Heat a heavy skillet and add the oil.

Carefully lay the medallions in the hot oil and cook a minute or two.

When the first side is lightly browned, turn them and cook the other side. While the second side cooks, lay the basil leaves (fresh)

in the oil and let them get crispy, but not brown.

Lay on paper towels.

tromboncino

Using tongs, remove the medallions, laying them on paper towels and sprinkle evenly with the parmesan cheese. The heat from the remaining oil will start to melt the cheese.

Add just a little pinch more of salt and some fresh cracked pepper.

Serve the crispy basil

You can dress it up a little more with some toasted pine nuts.
