This quick, flavorful dish lets you take advantage of the season’s bounty of zucchini. This recipe is excerpted from 5 Ingredients: Quick & Easy Food.
I would call this a lightened up version of paglia e fieno, using zucchini - I used a cutter to make zucchini noodles - instead of spinach pasta, and skipping the cream sauce. That made it light, summery, and still delicious.
This is a good recipe as is, and easy to make simple changes if you want. I see people have added things like basil and garlic, for instance. I added two small cloves of garlic, pressed, and I think that made a big difference to the flavor and balance. As much mint as I have, I still decreased it some. I'd serve it with sliced fresh tomatoes with a little lemon juice, olive oil, S&P, and parsley for a quick, easy side.
I made this tonight but with the addition of an assortment of mushrooms and green onions. Easy and a wonderful light meal for these hot days.
