How to prepare: Pasta with zucchini
To prepare the pasta with zucchini, start peeling the vegetables and cut them into cubes. In a large pan with high sides, brown the garlic in a little oil and add the diced courgettes. Season with salt and pepper and let them simmer so that they soften. Keep a third aside for finishing, so that you also have two different textures.
Add 2 glasses of hot water and bring to a boil, covering with the lid. When the water boils, flake part of the courgettes with a wooden spoon and add the pasta. Stir and continue cooking over low heat, stirring often and adding, only if necessary, a little more hot water: adjust so that when the pasta is cooked al dente there should not be too much water left in the pan.
When cooked, add the Parmesan cheese to taste and a few mint leaves. Stir off the heat for 1 minute until you get a creamy sauce. Then add the zucchini preserved at the beginning, mix gently and complete with a grind of pepper to taste. Transfer the pasta with courgettes to serving plates and serve.
