Fettuccine with zucchini and onions.

Who invented pasta was a genius. Easy, fun and with endless possibilities of preparation. A fail proof dish even for the first time ever attempt at cooking.
As I was browsing the internet this pasta dish caught my eyes.  What intrigues me was the fact that you wrap it on aluminum foil and bake it for 15 to 20 minutes. Went back to try to found it and  never found it again. After a couple of tries the recipe below is what I came up with. Tender pasta, soft zucchini and onions. The medley of flavors was delightful to the palate. A definite will prepare it again, and again.
