Tortiglioni with zucchini. An Italian classic dish that can be enjoyed all year round. However with summer at our doorstep, and having an abundance of just harvested zucchini, the flavor is out of this world.
Beautiful quiet night, a perfect night for pasta. 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
Simple ingredients, zucchini, pasta, onion, parmesan cheese, and eggs, that is all you need. Ingredients which are already in our pantry.
Do not shy away because the eggs are not cooked. The hot pasta and the hot zucchini will cook the egg.
The hot pasta will finish the cooking process as well as the hot zucchini. If in doubt, place it in a warm (200° oven for a few minutes, add some of the cooking water so it will not be too dry out).
Perfect one meal dish for the whole family, pot luck, or picnic.
