Creamy Zucchini Pasta

Zucchini cream pasta

-Oil and a dash of butter
-Chopped zucchini
-Salt & Pepper

-Parmigiana Reggiano Cheese (optional)
-Freshly grated nutmeg

Heat skillet and sautee onions, zucchini until translucent, add seasonings, then add garlic and sautee just a little more to take the sharpness out.

Now transfer to a blender and whiz until it's creamy.

To make a cream sauce check this recipe Add a dash of nutmeg.

Add the zucchini "pesto" to the cream sauce and a lot of finely chopped parsley. Garnish with cheese if desired.

Toss with pasta and serve!

For a variation add a smoked meat to the zucchini mix.
Another variation is heating some heavy cream in a skillet and it will thicken a bit (this is a quick cream sauce!) And add the pesto to that and toss.
