Cody’s Midwestern Garden: The Crazy Cucuzzi

Here’s a photo of me with my crazy cucuzzi.  They’re much better when smaller, but this is what happens when you go on vacation! The straight one was growing from a trellis on the garage, and I found the curvy one growing under the rhubarb.

My favorite part of this aggressively growing plant is the tendrils of the vine; just saute them with a little garlic, peperoncino, olive oil and a pinch of salt! And of course you could make quite a few zucca ravioli out of these two.
