Zucchini Tart


Wow… that’s all I can say about my zucchini plants. I can’t keep up with them! lol. I can’t believe I am saying this… but thats true. I pick so many that I feel I am eating zucchinis every day. The good news is that I love zucchini, so I just get creative and cook with them. 

Today I am making a simple summer zucchini tart using fresh herbs and zucchini from the garden. I am using an arugula pesto that I previously made and froze, but you can swap that for regular pesto, or whatever your favorite pesto is. Just be aware that the flavor might change a little bit.

Lets get to work!

Hola y Bienvenido/a! Hello and Welcome! My name is Ivette and I am a dual citizen! Originally, I from Catalonia, Spain but in 2014 I moved to the United States and I currently live in Maryland with my husband Richard (number 1 taster, thank you!), my baby girl Beulah my rescue dig Vicky and my two (big!) cutie cats Pintxo & Pastifa. Full house! I love Spanish food. In Spain there is always something to celebrate, gathering with friends and family… We have THREE dishes at every meal! Yes, 3! You will have a first full dish like pasta and for the second dish you will have fish/meat and then dessert, and after dessert coffee…. When I am in Spain and get together with my family (there are 31 of us!), we can start lunch at 2:30pm and finish it at 7pm… I have always loved cooking. My grandmother it is a great, great cook and I think my love of cooking is because of her. When I was in college, my favorite breaks, were getting into the kitchen and cooking or baking something. I was able to escape the normal daily routine of law school. In this blog, I would like to share some Spanish recipes as well as other delicious recipes. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me at joyofspanishcooking@gmail.com Bon profit!
