Tagliatelle alle Zucchine

Tagliatelle alle Zucchine | Wines and People |

This time of the year zucchini or other types of squash are abundant and so I decided to create a recipe for pasta with zucchini. To give the dish a nice flavor and a nice texture, I separated the seeds from the firmer flesh. I diced the firm part and sautéed the diced zucchini briefly over high heat. I chopped the soft part very fine and cooked it to a ‘sauce’ together with an onion and white wine. The resulting dish was very nice with a lovely flavor and texture just like I intended. Here’s what I did…

For 2 servings

  • 2 zucchini, 1 green and 1 yellow if available
  • 1 small onion, minced
  • 80 ml (1/3 cup) dry white wine
  • 150 grams (.33 lb) dried tagliatelle (or 225 grams (.5 lb) fresh tagliatelle)
  • 1 Tbsp minced fresh flat leaf parsley
  • freshly grated parmigiano reggiano
  • salt and freshly ground white pepper
  • 3 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil

The Le Marche region has a lot to offer to wine lovers. There are 5 DOCG wines and 16 DOC wines. From the prestigious and famous Verdicchio, to the Vernaccia di Serrapetrona, from the Offida Pecorino to the Offida Passerina. Also: Bianchello del Metauro, Colli Maceratesi, Colli Pesaresi, Esino, Falerio dei Colli Ascolani, I Terreni di Sanseverino, Lacrima di Morro d'Alba, Rosso Conero, Pergola, Rosso Piceno, San Ginesio Many of these wines are little known outside of Italy but visitors to the region have a pleasant surprise when they try the local wine produced by many small aziendas and cantinas.
