Pasta and zucchini free cheese, all the ideas – Italian Cuisine

Seasoning pasta with zucchini is a great timeless classic. We like it because it is delicate, simple to prepare and perfect for saving those evenings when the head and the refrigerator seem too empty to produce something good. And instead, here it is, in all its goodness. Even without cheese. Which certainly gives flavor, intensity and taste, but often weighs down dishes and ends up covering the delicate taste of zucchini.
But before discovering how we combined pasta and zucchini in our collection, here are some ideas to never get bored.

Integral, it's the right time

If you are looking for an excuse to eat whole wheat pasta, courgettes are the perfect idea for you. Have fun playing with different pasta shapes and enrich the topping to your liking with other vegetables, fish or bacon and diced speck. And after experimenting, you can continue with legume based pasta, but also rice and soy noodles …

Long live the cream

One of the most delicious ways to serve pasta and zucchini is to prepare a cream with the blanched vegetables, a little fresh garlic, extra virgin olive oil and a pinch of salt. It will become a wrapping and tasty condiment, perfect for turning every first dish into a truly special dish, especially if made with fresh pasta or spaghettoni.

The extra touch

If you love strong flavors, enrich your basic preparation with taggische olives, chilli, anchovy fillets in oil or peppers. The elegance of pasta and zucchini will not be lost. For a more delicate result instead, bet on cherry tomatoes, pine nuts, almonds and fish fillets stir-fried and … enjoy your meal!
