Blossoms italian style

Yield: 4 servings

Measure Ingredient
16 Squash blossoms; w/ stems
2 tablespoons Olive oil
2 cloves Garlic; coarsely chopped
1 teaspoon Oregano
Salt & black pepper to taste

The vibrant yellow blossoms of zucchini and other squash are delicious when dipped in batter and fried. The very large ones can be stuffed.

Peel the stems of the squash blossoms. Heat the oil in a large, heavy frying pan over medium heat. Add the garlic and saute, stirring, until lightly brown. Add squash blossoms, oregano, salt and pepper.

Cook slowly, stirring frequently, 5 to 8 minutes, or until the stems are soft.

Serve immediately.
