Zucchini Tagliatelle Alfredo

June 27th, 2008 · 69 Comments

This was another improvisational pasta night dish, as my original plans to use the last of my fresh ricotta were thwarted by the cheese having spoiled (so tragic). Fortunately, I still had some cream from last week’s shortcake, so this evolved into a springy green alfredo sauce. I thought it was yummy, but the husband felt it would be better if I had used bacon instead of zucchini …. you could certainly add meat to this recipe if you’re so inclined. I bet some Italian sausage would be good.

Recipe: Zucchini Alfredo Sauce


  • 1 c. shredded zucchini, strained/squeezed of excess liquid
  • 1 white onion (fresh CSA spring onion)
  • 1/3 c fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • 1 T butter
  • 1 T olive oil
  • salt & pepper
  • 1/2 c cream
  • 1/4 c grated parmiaggiano


Melt butter and olive oil in saute pan over medium heat. Add onion and cook until onion begins to brown, about 8 minutes. Stir in zucchini and cook 2 minutes more. Add pinch of salt and pepper and cream and cook about 5 minutes, until cream begins to bubble. Stir in parsley and cheese and remove from heat. Toss with cooked pasta (used tagliatelle here) and enjoy!

    You need to decide what your objective is before getting
    involved with social media marketing, which will result
    in greater success than if you were to go into it without any idea of why you’re really getting involved.
    If you are not producing successful social media campaigns then you are
    basically talking to a wall or to yourself.
    SEO (search engine optimization) is a term that is freely bandied about
    by people who like to make the art of internet marketing seem mysterious.

    You will probably recognise some or all of these as some as
    used more than others with very great success in carp baits:
    . For instance at a time when anglers where sticking
    rigidly to the mantra of 3 to 5 milliliters of flavour,
    plus 1 to 2 milliliters of intense sweetener to a pound of base mix or more, as measured by 4 large eggs or 6 medium
    eggs as a basis of measurement, I tried other approaches and reaped big rewards against much more experienced anglers.
    Here are the guild quests along with a handy location and a listing of the
    reward for completion.

    more tanner, your skin may not have completed its first round of tanning,
    and the end result is an orange skinned mess.
