"Fettuccine" are flat and narrow strips of durum wheat and eggs, wound into nests when raw. They owe their name to their ribbon-like shape, "fettuccia" being the Italian for ribbon.
|1||zucchini, cut into thin rounds||130 g|
|1 tbsp||olive oil||15 mL|
|1||shallots, finely chopped||40 g|
|1/3 cup||pasta cooking water||85 mL|
|1 tbsp||Parsley and Garlic Base||15 mL|
|1 pinch||salt [optional]||0.2 g|
|ground pepper to taste [optional]|
Before you start
Keep the serving plates 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.
- Shell the scampi and set them aside.
- Heat the oil in a skillet over medium-low heat. Add the finely chopped shallot and sweat 4 min with occasional stirring until translucent.
- To save time, the sauce preparation and the pasta cooking can be done at the same time. Bring to a boil a large pot of salted water. When it reaches a rolling boil, before adding the fettuccine, slice the zucchini into thin rounds and add them to the pot. After 2 min, add the fettuccine and cook them together about 5 min (the exact time will depend on the fettuccine type, follow the "cook the pasta" basic technique).
- In the meantime, add the scampi to the skillet and cook them a few minutes, turning them occasionally, until they turn pink (do not overcook them!). Pour in the required amount of pasta cooking water. Add the Parsley and Garlic Base, salt and pepper.
- Pour the drained fettuccine and zucchini into the skillet, toss well, then serve in the warmed dishes.
Parmesan is not added since the flavour of fish sauces in general does not benefit from the addition of cheese.
