We have been living on soup these past couple of weeks. This one was so good. (Well not really a soup but using the soup ramen) It came together quickly and easily. I will definitely be making this again. I can see myself adding either shrimp or chicken to this to elevate it a bit.

I just went out and grabbed one of the last cucuzza out of the garden for you to see Pia.

I think think lunga de Sicilia is the trombonica or Tromboncino squash, which I did also grow this year. The trombonica grow in the shape of a bulb at the end, and have a yellow flower. Where the cucuzza have a white flower.
Both grew very well this year, both are well worth growing, similar to a Zucchini in taste and the same growing conditions but I grew both on a trellis this year with better results!

This is the Tromboncino (not my photo)

Oh, yes, my cucuzza ( the one with the white flowers) just sprouted in the greenhouse. I need to transplant it. It did great two years ago but I left them on the plant for too long and the become too tough to eat.
I'll pay more attention this year.
In Sicily they eat the young leaves also.
Thanks for all the pictures. :X
