Mob Wives: Lana Graziano-Zanococchio Serves Up Zucchini

Lana can burn!
For those who don't know there are 3 Graziano sisters.  The oldest is Lana.  I've had the pleasure of talking to her now & again.  She's a charmer.  Lana is so very proud of her sisters' success.  Awhile back I asked Anthony & Ronnie's oldest baby for a quick & easy recipe.

Lana Graziano-Zanoccochio's Zucchini

5 green zucchinis
3 large sweet onions
1/2 cup olive oil
1 can of chicken broth
2 cans Pastene crushed tomatoes
black pepper
crushed red pepper flakes

Cut the zucchinis in half length wise, then slice width wise.  You should end with with inch thick half circles.  Slice the onions & place into sauce pot with olive oil.  Cook on high turning them until they are almost clear; add chicken broth & crushed tomatoes; continue to cook on high bringing the mixture to a boil.  Turn down heat to simmer; add salt, black pepper and crush red pepper flakes to taste.  Finally add zucchini until it softens (about 60 to 90 minutes).  Serve over cooked spaghetti and add grated cheese.   It's out of this world.

 It's a simple and tasty dish.  It's a great way to have the kids join you in the kitchen and help with it's preparation.  I've discovered my kids will eat anything they've help make.  How can a cook not eat & enjoy their own food?  If I've learned nothing else from Mob Wives, they sure in the hell can cook.

Lana has led a very interesting life.  She's a dedicated mother and great friend to many.  She is a close friend to Bigg Ang of Mob Wives & even called Love Majewski's (I Married A Mobster & Deadly Sins) father friend.  Let us know how Lana's recipe works out for you.  My family enjoyed it!
