Basil Chicken and Zucchini Pasta
March 18, 2014
Pantry staples plus fresh garden produce make eating and cooking at this time of year a joyous activity for me, I love it!! I adore the abundance that results from the garden at this time of year. Our food expenses drop as I only visit the store for milk and a few other bits and pieces. This is the type of dinner that results. An easy to prepare dinner that is simply fresh and tasty.
The garden has been producing a lovely stream of zucchini (courgette). I am keen to enjoy the last of the produce before the cold weather sets in and everything slows to a trickle.
I made this pasta at the end of the day that I cooked up 12 kilos of tomatoes into passata. I couldn’t wait to taste the richness of the gloriously red tomato sauce. The passata was immediately on the menu, I left a bottle in a jug ready to add the zucchini and fresh basil from the garden. The pasta with this dish was fabulous as the folds held secret bonus bits of the sauce.
We are an unashamed pasta loving family. I do believe (wishfully hope) that there must be some Italian blood somewhere in my ancestry…. I could eat it every day.
