Zucchini with Walnuts
Zucchini con Noci


  • 1 cup walnuts
  • 6 medium zucchini
  • 1 Tbs extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 Tbs butter
  • salt
  • freshly ground pepper
  • Parmesan cheese


  1. Heat the butter and oil over a low flame.
  2. Cut the unpeeled zucchini in thin slices (about 1/8 inch thick).
  3. Sauté the slices in the butter and oil, stirring gently.
  4. Chop the walnuts into small pieces.
  5. When they are almost tender add the walnuts, salt, and pepper.
  6. Continue cooking and stirring until the zucchini is tender.
  7. Plate and garnish with freshly grated Parmesan cheese.

Note: You can substitute yellow squash, or use a combination of yellow squash and zucchini. You can add the squash to pasta, add more olive oil, and have a fresh and light pasta dish.

Sabatier Precision 14-Piece Stainless-Steel Knife Block Set
You won't be missing a single cutting tool with this 14-piece cutlery block set from Sabatier. It contains a 3-1/2-inch paring knife, an 8-inch chef knife, an 8-inch slicer, an 8-inch bread knife, a 6-inch boning knife, six 5-inch steak knives, a pair of kitchen shears, a sharpening steel, and a 14-slot block to keep them in. The knives are made from high-carbon stainless steel, which is the industry standard, and have full tangs, meaning that the steel goes all the way through the handle. These knives feel a little lighter than professional quality sets, and won't hold the same razor-sharp edge, but for those looking for a complete starter set these will work just fine. The shears are a nice bonus when cutting through bones or joints, and they'll cut through bags and boxes and do a fine job of snipping herbs into a sauce. The sharpening steel helps to keep the blade true, and the block keeps tools handy and protected.
