I love zucchinis and I'm always on the look-out for different ways to prepare them. My husband is still pine nut shy after his pine nut mouth experience. I wonder if macadamias would work okay.

Mrs. L

Cassaendra - I almost didn't make this recipe because of reading about folks that had problems with pine nuts and taste issues. It's the first time I've used them in ages. I think Macadamias would be great as a substitute if you didn't want to risk the pine nuts.


Seems like it would have been better but recipes sometimes turn out that way. Or maybe we are all just spoiled with knockout dishes :)


This looks and sounds wonderful but I would have to do without any nuts. If you use nuts do cashews and grind it really, really small. I do love zucchinis.


I'm out here looking for a new way to make some zucchini for our weekly mid-week BBQ and this looks perfect. Can't wait to try it.

One important note about the pine nuts ... make SURE they do not come from China! The only ones that ever gave folks that numbing-weird-mouth experience came from there. =/ Not 100% sure why but I think it was because they are exposed to some noxious chemicals while being transported / processed / packaged. (Yuck! I think I'm going to head to the pantry to see if I have any other food stuffs from there. I sure hope not.) If the pine nuts are from either a European country or the USA and you won't have a problem.

Chris - I'm learning to enjoy the simple dishes...makes the knockout dishes better :)

Mom - Maybe more bread crumbs or something would work for you.

Nic - Thanks for letting me know which pine nuts to look out for. I really did worry about that.

Mrs. L

HFB - Thanks, it is much healthier than some of the stuff I cook!
