How to Make Fresh Tomato Sauce w/ Sautéed Zucchini & Spaghetti

Step-by-Step

  1. For the Zucchini:
    Place the sliced zucchini in a bowl; add the seasonings, lemon juice and canola.
    Heat a large frying pan and place the sliced zucchini in the pan; do not over crowd the pan. When the zucchini become golden on one side, turn over and finish cooking on the other side.
    Set the zucchini aside for the spaghetti dish.

    For the Fresh Tomato Sauce:
    Heat a heavy cast iron sauce pot on a medium to low heat; add the tomatoes and cook down, uncovered.
    Add the olive oil, garlic, basil and seasonings and continue to cook down on a low heat; uncovered. The longer you cook the sauce the better it gets.
    Prepare the spaghetti according to directions and drain.
    Place the spaghetti in a serving bowl. Top with a drizzle of olive oil, a dash of red pepper flakes; add the fresh tomato sauce and toss. Add fresh grated cheese, Asiago cheese and fresh basil to finish the dish.
    Serve this dish with a glass of Baglio Di Pianetto wine.
