Ingredients

160 g gluten free/wheat free fusilli 2 1/2 cups
1 zucchini, cut into 4-5 mm rounds 130 g
1/3 cup My Mother's Tomato Sauce 85 mL
3 tbsp Parsley and Garlic Base 45 mL
1 tbsp olive oil 15 mL
2 tbsp Parmesan cheese, grated 6 g
1/4 tsp paprika 1 g
2 tbsp cream 15% 30 mL
salt [optional]
ground pepper to taste [optional]

Before you start

Keep the serving dishes in the oven at the lowest setting so they are warm when you serve.

Put a colander in the sink to drain the cooked pasta so that it will be ready when needed.

A mandolin will make slicing the zucchini easier.

Method

  1. Prepare the zucchini. Slice them into 4-5 mm rounds.
  2. Heat oil in a pan over medium heat. Add the parsley and garlic base. Add the zucchini rounds and cook 5 min uncovered, stirring frequently.
  3. To save time, the rest of the sauce preparation and the pasta cooking can be done at the same time. Cook the pasta.
  4. Back to the zucchini pan, add salt, cover, and cook over low heat about 8-10 min, or until the zucchini is soft, but still al dente. Add paprika to taste, the tomato sauce and cook just a few minutes.
  5. Pour the drained fusilli into the zucchini pan, add the cream, pepper to taste, sprinkle with grated Parmesan, then mix well. Serve in the warmed dishes.
