A whopper from the garden

From Betty's community garden plot.  Seeds were from an Italian seed company
Us supplier for Seeds of Italy is
 and plant is from pumpkin/squash family.
Name in English is Sicilian Snake and in Italian is Tinniruma or zucchina
siciliana di media lunghezza or cuccuzi.  She grew the plant up stakes
covered with netting as they also like to eat the shoots and this keeps them
off the ground and cleaner.  The squash itself she likes to eat in soup.

It's photo number 20.

Most of the recipes that I can find for it in Italian seem to be a soup or a
soupy pasta which include
Tinniruma, tinniruma leaves, pasta, tomato, olive oil, salt and pepper.
Here is a picture of the most common dish

recipe also has potatoes in it.
