Beautiful quiet night, pasta night. This recipe is one of those recipes that we forget that we have, and as soon as we sit down and start eating it we ask ourselves why we do not make it more often. Simplicity at his best and simple ingredients, zucchini, pasta, onion, parmesan cheese and eggs.
Do not shy away because the eggs are not cooked. The hot pasta and the hot zucchini will cook the egg.
Perfect one meal dish for the whole family.
Tonight’s March 8, 2013 dinner:
Tortiglioni with Zucchini
Cookie with Vanilla Ice Cream
TORTIGLIONI WITH ZUCCHINI
1 box of Tortiglioni pasta
2 tablespoons olive oil
Grated Parmesan Cheese
1 onion thinly sliced
6-7 small zucchini
Salt and pepper
Clean the zucchini well, peel them and slice them in thin slices. In a frying pan add the butter and the olive oil. When the butter is melted add the onion.
As soon as the onion is beginning to soften, add the zucchini to the skillet and with high heat for a couple of minutes. Lower the heat to medium low and cook slowly. Add salt, pepper and keep warm.
Meanwhile cook the pasta according to the package directions. While the pasta is cooking, in a large bowl beat the two eggs, slightly salted them and add plenty of Parmesan Cheese.
When the pasta is al dente, drain and add to the egg mixture. Mix well and add the zucchini. Mix well again and serve immediately.
