      I love the spinach but use slices of garlic.

    2. Zucchini slices cooke el dente in a tomato based sauce (with onions, garlic and a few herbs) would accompany that kind of dish quite nicely.

        1. rapini sauteed with onion, olive oil, red chili flakes..... this equals the perfect companion

            The first thing that came to my mind was rapini sauteed with garlic and olive oil. If not, salad greens lightly dressed with a vinagrette would be a nice compliment. Serve crusty bread too!

              yep. I'm with pancake and kubasd. Can't go wrong with rapini and red chili flake. I ditch the onion and go with crispy sliced garlic.

          2. 6 to 8 inch zuchinis quartered the longways, marinate in Italian style dressing or olive oil & vinegar, grill turning occasionaly until they start to go a little limp.
