We used zucchini as our main vegetable ingredient, you can use green beans or cauliflower or your favorite combination of vegetables. We also like to add a lot of garlic, you can use more or less depending on your taste.
We also used 2 different types of pasta. The shape is called Busiate which is traditional pasta from Sicily. The darker pasta is made from tumminia ancient grain & has 6 times more fiber than regular pasta. The yellow durum pasta is made from stone ground semolina which is high in nutrients and protein.
1 large onion
4 cloves of garlic
2 lb zucchini
3 jars Papa Vince Cherry Tomato Sauce
1 lb Papa Vince Busiate Pasta, Durum or Tumminia (1 pack)
Papa Vince Sea Salt
Papa Vince Extra Virgin Olive Oil
In English this recipe's name is Country Pasta. It's a simple recipe that my mom grew up eating in Sicily, especially at harvest time when they would eat outdoors. The tasty sauce is made with fresh tomatoes and raw garlic which is so good for your health. It's clean healthy food that can be eaten as part of the Mediterranean diet and it's suitable for Vegans and Vegetarians too.
