  • Bring a saucepan of water to a boil while spaghetti is cooking. Cut a cross into the bottom of each tomato and place them in the boiling water for 1 minute. Remove with a slotted spoon and immediately rinse under cold water. Peel, remove central core, and chop pulp.

  • Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat and cook onion until soft and translucent, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add zucchini and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 5 minutes. Season with herbes de Provence, salt, and pepper. Add tomatoes and cream and bring to a boil. Mix in basil. Stir in feta; cook until warmed through but sauce is not boiling, about 1 minute. Stir in drained spaghetti.

Cook's Note:

If you're in a rush, you don't need to blanch the tomatoes.

Tasty and easy even though I didn't have all the ingredients! I substituted canned tomatoes for the fresh ones. Instead of the herbs de Provence I used some basil, thyme, and oregano. Also for heavy cream I used half and half with a tablespoon of melted butter. Delicious! Read More

Deliciously easy. I omitted the herbs de Provence because I don t care for highly fragrant herbs on my spaghetti and did change a few measurements because as my husband says for some reason I can never follow a recipe. I am far from a great cook but my daughter said it smelled looked and tasted like something from the Food Network. Read More
