Italian deep fried dough is one of the most delightful dessert items that you can enjoy on the menu at an Italian eatery. Often called zippoli, this is a tasty dish that can be served in several different ways, and I have found that it is the perfect finisher most Italian meals.

I’ve always enjoyed gourds. While there are things about each season I enjoy, I think that squash is the single food I look forward to the most. Gourds come with great memories: for me, it’s pumpkin seeds in October, syrup laden squash with Thanksgiving dinner in November, with a smattering of local squash for dinner in December. I’ll often find myself wistfully longing to spend time with my family over a squash in mid-July.

The bold flavors of each of the ingredients listed under this recipe are held by a strong bond to each other.
