Ingredients list

  • 500 g fusilli
  • 200 g zucchini
  • 20 g basil
  • 50 g pine nuts
  • 50 g pecorino cheese grated
  • 50 g parmesan cheese grated
  • 150 ml olive oil extra virgin
  • salt to taste

Directions

  • First, bring a large pot of generously salted water to a boil and cook the fusilli al dente according to package directions.
  • In the meantime, wash the zucchini and remove the two ends. Grate into coarse strips with a kitchen grater. Place in a large sieve and carefully squeeze out the excess liquid.
  • Then place the zucchini strips in the bowl of the hand blender. Grate the Parmigiano and Pecorino and add to the cup along with the pine nuts and basil.
  • Add a little olive oil and mix gently on low speed with the hand blender. Gradually add the remaining olive oil until the pesto has a nice creamy consistency.
  • Pour a ladleful of pasta water into a cup and set aside. Remove the finished pasta from the heat, drain, and return to the pot.
  • Now add the zucchini pesto and some pasta water to the fusilli. Finally, mix everything thoroughly, divide into deep plates and enjoy immediately.
