Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook the pasta according to the manufacturers instructions. Time the cooking of your pasta so that it is ready at the same time as your sauce.
  2. Fry the onions, garlic and zucchini in a little olive oil over a high heat. Once the zucchini is softened and the garlic has begun to colour, add the wine, then the cream.
  3. Simmer for 30 seconds, then add the goats' cheese and pine nuts, then season with salt and pepper.
  4. Toss in the pasta and basil leaves and serve with grated parmesan.

This is mild in flavour, yet still quite tasty. I used light cream, but otherwise stuck to the recipe. The addition of hot chilli flakes (to the leftovers) kicked the flavour up a notch. The sauce to pasta ratio was spot-on, but next time along with the chilli flakes I'll add extra goat's cheese and pine nuts for a more robust flavour.

This is very tasty. I used mini penne because I had never seen it before and it was cute. This has such a nice flavor, I made exactly as written. Thank you!
