If you’re not familiar with the joys of stuffed zucchini blossoms, then you really don’t know what you’re missing. These little bites of heaven are amazingly delicious and so easy to make!

Spring season offers us many delicacies to bring to our tables, and among these there are zucchini blossoms, possibly filled with creamy and cheesy goodness!

In order to satisfy all palates, our chefs have created a tasty oven-baked version: not as heavy as the fried version (check out fried zucchini blossoms recipe here).

Stuffed zucchini blossoms can be enjoyed as an appetizer, a side-dish or as an aperitivo, always next to a lovely glass of wine
