Yesterday was a day of indulgence for me so no judgement here emoticon . I bet it was delicious :).

I love pasta too! Would definitely have to be strong about the portion control.

That would make it healthier. Lots of butter and cream in this one. In the comments for the recipe someone also tried milk, the creator said milk is fine just make sure the heat is low so it doesn't curdle.

Update: You can also have it as a side I think if you want to have a smaller portion of it with some more greens or legumes?

Haven't used heavy cream (except during the holidays as a treat), so may try half and half?

Creamy Zucchini Fettuccine

Serves 3 (or 2 very hungry people)
Salt, to taste
8 ounces fettuccine
4 tablespoons butter
4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon chile flakes, to taste
2 small zucchini, finely diced
Zest of 1 lemon
1/4 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup grated Romano or Parmesan cheese
Pepper, to taste
Sprinkling of finely chopped fresh basil, optional

Bring a pot of water to a boil over high heat. Salt the water liberally. This is how pasta gets its flavor, so donít be shy! Most of the salt wonít end up in the pasta.

Cook the pasta according to the package directions. I drain the pasta just before itís finished so it doesnít get mushy when I add it to the vegetable pan, where it gets cooked a little more.

Meanwhile, melt 1 tablespoon of the butter in a pan over medium heat. Add the garlic and chile flakes. Let them sizzle for 30 seconds to a minute, then add the zucchini. Stir the vegetables to coat. Cook, stirring occasionally, until some of the water has cooked off and the veggies are tender, 5 to 7 minutes; young summer zucchini doesnít need much cooking. Add the lemon zest and stir.

Drain the fettuccine and add it to the pan, along with the remaining 3 tablespoons of butter, the cream, and most of the cheese. Toss the fettuccine around the pan, and add salt and lots of freshly ground pepper to taste. Top with a bit more cheese and a sprinkling of basil, if using, and serve immediately.
