Stuffed zucchini boats is a delicious and merry recipe, perfect as appetizer or entrée! They can be stuffed with various filling either vegetarian or with meat or fish: today I decided to fill my zucchini a tasty pork ragù combined with mashed potatoes and Pecorino Romano cheese!
Everyone likes the mashed potatoes! Today I propose a recipe from my family, the Italian mashed potatoes. The main characteristic of this recipe is the total absence of lumps, and Its smooth and creamy taste. To obtain a puree in this way is essential to sift the peeled potatoes throughout a good mill. To make my mashed potatoes even more delicious I added grated Parmigiano Reggiano cheese and white pepper. If you want, you can replace it with another type of grated cheese, the important thing is that it melts and amalgams easy and fast with the puree.

When I see rack of lamb in plain sight on the butcher’s counter, I simply cannot resist! I love its unique flavor, almost naturally spicy, and its versatility: you can fry, pan-fry, bake, or stew it. My very first memory of lamb goes back to my maternal grandmother’s breaded lamb chops: fried and immediately served in a dish with baked potatoes…yum, sooner or later I’ll make them again! Today we will prepare the rack of lamb simply in the oven, after having briefly pan-fried it. To enhance the flavor of the meat I recommend an intense sage pesto and to finish off, a scented potato purée seasoned with fennel; need I say more? Buon appetito!
