Let’s start by slicing up our pretty zucchini and then giving it a quick dip in some egg.
Next mix together 1 cup of bread crumbs, 1/2 cup of flour, 1/2 cup of shredded parmesan and a bit of salt and pepper.
Go ahead and dredge your zucchini through this mixture!
Heat a few inches of vegetable oil in a pan and quickly fry your zucchini in batches…
It should only take a few minutes for your zucchini to brown and crisp up!
When it’s done let it drain on a few paper towels and try your hardest not to eat it all before dinner time!
Let’s get a sauce going for this dish!
Heat a few tablespoons of olive oil in a pan and sauté 1/2 diced white onion…
And a few cloves of minced garlic…
Once you’ve given your garlic a few seconds to cook go ahead and add 1 cup of white wine to the pan…
And 1/2 cup of heavy cream!
I have the biggest crush on heavy whipping cream right now.
Now add 1 tablespoon of dijon mustard to your sauce…
And the juice of half a lemon!
I don’t know what your going to like more, the fried zucchini or this creamy, lemony sauce!
Add a pinch of salt and let this sauce simmer and reduce for a few minutes.
Are you ready to eat?
Combine your pasta, sauce, and zucchini on a pretty platter…
Then dish up! I went ahead and threw a little more parmesan on top.
I don’t think they’ll be any leftovers tonight!
