  • Summary

    Try to use small zucchini for this recipe, since they tend to stay firm and not turn to mush. I used penne in this recipe, but any short pasta will do.

    Ingredients

    • 1 pound/ 500 grams pasta
    • 2 pounds baby zucchini
    • 1 medium onion, chopped
    • 4 cloves garlic, chopped finely
    • ? cup extra virgin olive oil
    • ¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes
    • ¾ cup grated parmigiano reggiano
    • 1 cup packed chopped fresh herbs (basil, parsley, chives)
    • salt
