pasta with zucchini and curcuma (turmeric)

zucchini con gurkmeja

this is actually not my idea, I went to a cooking course the other night.
the recipes were very interesting, but the cook was nasty.
kept hacking on us when evere she notice we didn't know, what was for
elementary things.
well, if I already know everything I wouldn't come to a cooking course, would I
anyway..this recipe was introduced as a tasty way of conserving zucchinis.
you cut them julienne and heat a pan were you put olive oil and curcuma.
add the zucchini and cook a few minutes.
put them in glass jars, cover with other oil.
close lid and sterilize for 20min in boiling water.
I found them very tasty so I decide to use the idea to make a pasta sauce.
pasta with zucchini and curcuma.

  1. That's a beautiful photo of the pasta. I didn't know what curcuma was but I looked it up on google. Don't worry about the cooking instructor...I bet he doesn't write a fun blog, hike all over the country, or make so many herb-alicious things like you do!
