Some time back, I had shared an easy recipe on brownie ( Easy-Peasy Brownies) and the readers asked for more of these hassle free recipes.

As a child, it was the vacation time in summer we would look forward to, it was about ice creams and pepsicolas and ice balls with those colourful syrups!

It is usually served in a small portion and is responsible for elevating the the eating experience of the main course. In most meals, the main function of the side dish is to improve the nutritive value of the the meal and hence salads are the most common sides.

To put it simply, the main function of a side dish is to tantalise the taste buds and make eating a great experience . In Italian food, often along with pastas, garlic bread, salads, vegetable gratin etc are good accompaniments. Continue reading “Zucchine Al Forno – Side by Side”
