How to Make Pasta with Zucchini


  • 1Heat a large frying pan and saute the pancetta until clear.
  • 2Remove the meat and fat from the pan.
  • 3Drain and discard the fat and set the meat aside.
  • 4Add the olive oil to the pan and saute the garlic for just a moment.
  • 5Add the well-drained zucchini and saute over high heat until the zucchini is hot but not mushy.
  • 6Add the cream and stir.
  • 7Cook the pasta (I prefer penne with this dish) and toss the above with the cooked pasta, adding the pancetta, cheese and salt and pepper to taste.
  • 8* Note: American bacon will work instead of pancetta, but the flavor is very different.
