It all started with a post on Facebook. It often does. Either there, or with a memorable meal I try to recreate.
One of my favorite Portland pizza places posted a tantalizing photo of a seasonal zucchini dish they’d made that caught my eye and inspired my inner chef. Next thing I knew, I suddenly had a bumper crop of summer zucchini piling up on my counters and I knew the first thing I wanted to make… Pizzaria Otto’s Zucchini. Because it’s that good, and one can only eat so much zucchini bread. A little hunting down the key ingredients, and a few trials later, I had discovered a zucchini recipe that I not only devoured as my main course but was one I wanted to make again and again. Good thing there’s plenty more summer zucchini coming in.
Pair this spicy dish with a dry pinot gris or albariño like Archer Pinot Gris or Abacela Albariño.
