Friday Recipe: Rotini with Cheesy Zucchini (on Sunday)

Rotini with Cheesy Zucchini

INGREDIENTS

7 ounces rotini pasta
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 cloves garlic, chopped
4 1/2 cups small zucchini, sliced
salt and black pepper to taste
2/3 cup ricotta/soy cheese, crumbled (I always substitute cottage cheese instead of ricotta, as a healthy alternative)
1 handful basil, chopped

PREPARATION
1. Cook the pasta in plenty of boiling water with a little salt and oil.

2. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a heavy-based pan and very gently fry the garlic until soft (don’t let it brown).

3. Add the zucchini and gently stir-fry for 4-5 minutes. Season and set aside.

4. Drain the pasta and mix with the zucchini. Add the cheese, check the seasoning, garnish with basil, and serve immediately.

One thought on “Friday Recipe: Rotini with Cheesy Zucchini (on Sunday)

  1. I made this for dinner tonight and it was another hit! I had to keep looking at the recipe to see if I was missing something because it’s just so simple and quick. It is such a great meal. Trying to think of something else to have with it. Maybe some rolls or bread sticks.
    It does fill you up but I kept feeling like it should have more in it. It doesn’t though because it’s so tasty the way it is.
    I can’t wait for next friday.
