Homemade Basil Fettuccine
Start a big pot of water boiling. Saute some chopped onion in olive oil for about 5 minutes in a large skillet. Add a clove or two of garlic, sliced zucchini, and cherry tomatoes to the onions and saute until the veggies are cooked through. While they are cooking, add your pasta to the rapidly boiling water. It will only take 1 1/2 minutes to cook if it is fresh, and about 2 minutes if it's frozen. Add the pasta directly to the pan with the veggies, along with about 1/2 cup of the pasta cooking water. I wanted a nice fresh tasting sauce, so I just added about 1/2 c sour cream, s&p to taste, and any other herbs or seasonings you like with your pasta. Add as much Parmesan as you like, and toss is all together, take it off the heat and add a couple big handfuls of fresh spinach. Top with more Parmesan. I also added veggie meatballs that I mentioned in the post I wrote about before. Again, it was vegetarian with out trying to be so. It was quite good.
