Zucchini Pasta

It is not one of those raw pastas. It's just regular pasta with a single-ingredient sauce. I learned it from my Italian-chef-brother-in-law, Sandro. It's very simple and quick. If you can't see how this could possibly be delicious - try it! I assure you - you will be surprised at how amazingly good it is!

Bowtie or other large and short pasta
2 large zucchinis (or whatever little squashes you have - I used Gray Mexican)
1 T butter
Freshly ground black pepper

Yes, that's it!

Cook pasta.
While it's cooking, saute the zucchini in butter until translucent.
Sprinkle salt and pepper
Mix pasta in.

I absolutely believe that this will be delicious -- I love pasta with nothing but browned butter, but I'm always looking to incorporate more vegetables into my cooking. And since I have the ingredients on hand, I'll probably make this later this week.

Also, sour grapes recipe = really inventive!
