Pairing of the Day: April 18-22, 2011
This pasta is an ode to the mountains of fried zucchini Gwyneth Paltrow ate at Elio's, an Italian restaurant on Manhattan's Upper East Side, growing up. Here, she adds the crispy zucchini slices to spaghetti that's tossed with shredded Parmesan cheese (which adds texture to the dish) and plenty of olive oil and basil.
Pairing: Fresh, zippy California Sauvignon Blanc: 2009 Quivira Fig Tree.
