I intersperse flowers with my vegetables in order to bring my bees to pollinate. The bees are loving my sunflowers right now – see her stuffed pollen sacs?Other friendly bugs are in my garden.I started growing Trombetta di Albenga this year.Today I harvested my first Trombetta. It was absolutely delicious! This is how I cooked it: I added Olive Oil to the pan and added 2 cloves of minced garlic. Fried those up a bit.
I next added one Trombetta, thinly sliced, and another clove of minced garlic.
I cooked it for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
In the last minute, I added some fresh French Tarragon leaves and a healthy handful of a fresh parmesan/romano mix.
