“This basic dish serves as a quick and simple weeknight dinner for four—or as a starter for a bigger crowd if you use small cocottes. If you want to step it up, simply add a zucchini or pumpkin blossom to each plate. Do this by sautéing them over medium-high heat with some vegetable oil until wilted.”
