inspiration of the moment Pasta

September 2, 2015 Recipes No Comments

I was thinking earlier today that I would post a pickled beets recipe
then I got hungry

I came into the kitchen and on the kitchen table I saw:
1/2 large zucchini
3 medium size tomato
a bunch of basil

I became hungry for pasta
I put a pot of water to boil and started on a fresh sauce

here is what I came up with
fresh, simple, delicious
I’ll call it

September 2nd Pasta Sauce

2 cups of cubed zucchini
1 cup chopped tomato
3 large cloves of garlic, grated
olive oil
one bunch of basil chopped
salt and pepper

In a skillet heat up some oil, throw in the zucchini.
Mix and cook with cover on until translucent and soft.
Add tomatoes.
Cook uncovered to let evaporate extra juice.
Add salt and pepper to taste.

Cook your choice of pasta.
When your pasta is cooked, rinse then place in a bowl. Toss in the chopped basil and add a little more olive oil. Mix.

Serve pasta, top with sauce, sprinkle some feta cheese or goat cheese or any kind of cheese you like (or no cheese, still good)

ps. the reason I didn’t put the basil in the sauce was to not overcook it. Adding it to the warm pasta with a little bit of oil seems to nicely spread the aroma throughout the pasta.
