Many think that eating pasta will make you gain weight, but it has been scientifically proven that pasta, if you serve it ‘al dente’ this is not the case. When pasta is overcooked the body will absorb the flour and turn it into fat, but when it is al dente this is not possible. So make sure you cook your pasta to the point of ‘al dente’ and enjoy!
- Padano cheese
- Salt and pepper
- Olive oil
Put a large pan with water and salt on the stove. When the water is boiling you add the pasta.
The cooking time of the pasta is more than enough to prepare the sauce.
- Chop a small onion and a large clove of garlic into small pieces
- Wash and cut the courgette in slices of about half a cm thickness
- Put a dash of olive oil in a frying pan and glace the onion and garlic and move to the side in the frying pan.
- Then add the sliced courgette and sprinkle the slices with some salt and pepper
It is important to not overcook the courgette. They are nice when still a little bit crunchy. So it is best to fry quickly till they are slightly browned on both sides.
- When the pasta is al dente you mix it into the frying pan with the courgette and add freshly grated Padano o Parmesan cheese to taste.
- Serve immediately
