“A tavola non si invecchia”. - Italian proverb (At the table with good friends and family you do not become old).

Sharing authentic Italian recipes entrusted upon me through the privilege of being invited into many Italian homes and kitchen’s abroad. I travel, cook, eat, share, learn and photograph my experiences, a truly soul enriching journey. There are now over 100 recipes on this blog to search from. I am a Melbourne born girl who now resides in Pietrasanta, Italy. Sharing my love for food and all things Italian with you. I am not a professionally trained chef, just a person that really loves cooking and has made my passion my reality! Through talent and drive I now work as a private chef in some of the most prestigious private villa`s here in Tuscany, Italy!

frittata di zucchine- Zucchini omelette

Easy, is the only word I want to use to describe this.  Ok, I need to use another...delicious.  Do you really need any other inspiring words other than easy and delicious when it comes to cooking?
Frittata is essentially an egg based dish enriched with various ingredients such as vegetables, cheese and meat. This version just so happens to host all three. It packs a powerful flavour punch.
When cut into slices it is the perfect snack food. It is also a great party food option as you can make it a day in advance, store it in the fridge and serve cold- boom!
what you need:
150g prosciutto cotto (ham)
two medium size zucchini
four grape/cherry tomatoes 
eight eggs
two tablespoons flour
two tablespoons milk
1/3 cup grated freshly grated parmesan cheese
one teaspoon fresh grated nutmeg
salt and pepper
how to make:
1: Grate the zucchini, place in a tea towel and squeeze and strain any juices (important or you will have a soggy frittata)
2: Cut the ham into small pieces and grate the cheese and nutmeg
3: Whisk the eggs, add all of the remaining ingredients
4: Cut the tomatoes into quarters and place on top for decoration
5: Grease (olive oil) and pour the mixture into a baking tray
6: Place in a pre-heated 180 degree oven for 25 minutes or until cooked
