Cathi's Florentine Zucchini

Rated as 2.44 out of 5 Stars
0

"A simple, delicious pasta that my friend Cathi created while living in Florence. Flavors you wouldn't think to combine mix wonderfully. Don't use large, woody zucchini, but nice, young tender ones. The fresher the ricotta, the better. How much you reduce the wine depends on your ricotta: if you have fresh, slightly runny ricotta you need to let the wine reduce a little more than half, maybe two thirds, or your end product will be runny. And use a pasta with nooks to hold the sauce."

  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain.
  2. Meanwhile, heat oil in a medium skillet over medium heat. Saute onion and garlic until onions begin to soften. Stir in zucchini and season with salt and pepper.
  3. Increase the heat to medium-high and add the wine. Allow it to reduce by half, stirring frequently. Reduce heat to medium-low and stir in ricotta and cinnamon. Heat through and season with salt and pepper. Add drained pasta to skillet and toss. Serve immediately.

i have to agree that this recipe was quite strange. i wouldnt recommend wasting your time to try it.

I never found a pasta dish I didn't like untill now! This recipe was, to be nice HORRIBLE! Don't make it!

The general idea is good, but like others have said, the cinnamon is rather strange. I used nutmeg instead, as it's found in alfredo sauce, and used about half as much (1/8 tsp).

This recipe was great until I had to add cinnamon. I had to add a million spices just to negate this flavor. I highly recommend not using this recipe. There are a million other things you can do...

We loved this recipe. The cinnamon was a nice flavor. I added leftover turkey for a one pot supper.
