We had our first zucchini of the season this week! I have several yummy zucchini recipes, but this is one I often forget about. I don’t often fix pasta, but this recipe I absolutely love.
Summer Zucchini & Tomato Pasta
thin spaghetti noodles
3 medium zucchini (or more!)
2-3 medium tomatoes, chopped (or more!)
1/2 c- 1c parmesan cheese
1 T butter
1/4 c olive oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 tsp dried basil
1. Prepare pasta according to directions on box.
2. Julienne zucchini and steam for 3 minutes. Set aside.
3. In a small saucepan, combine butter, olive oil, garlic, and basil. Simmer for 10 minutes. Do not let garlic get brown (will get bitter).
4. Combine garlic and oil mixture with noodles, zucchini, tomatoes, and parmesan cheese. Serve with extra cheese at the table.
I salt everything, so I think it needs salt!
