This is obviously a post that I wrote before leaving for Switzerland, I feel pretty good about myself being such a good girl that I have made several blog posts that will be posted in my abscence, well, not that many but at least this week and then I hope to be able to access Lucullian to share some photos with you. If that is possible because I still don’t know whether I can access internet via wi-fi or not since I changed to Snow Leopard on my Mac. If life is smiling to me, I will make a post on the spot, I promise. But this is all in the eventual future (as this is while I write it), today I want to serve you pasta with hot zucchini cream and a nice little topping if you feel like that. If you don’t just leave it out and go for the zucchini, it is really good as it is as well!

PASTA WITH ZUCCHINI CREAM AND A SUN-DRIED TOMATO AND PINE NUT TOPPING
4 servings

400 g pasta
8 small zucchini
3 whole sun-dried tomatoes, finely chopped
3 tblsp pine nuts
1 clove garlic, optional
chili pepper in flakes and powder
salt
extra-virgin olive oil

Cook the pasta.

While the pasta is cooking you slice the zucchini and slowly cook it in olive oil, chili pepper and the garlic cut in 4 until the zucchini is golden.

Put the zucchini, garlic and some of the olive oil in a blender and run it until they are smooth and creamy.

Mix the freshly cooked pasta with the zucchini cream and serve topped with the chopped sun-dried tomatoes and some pine nuts.
