my vegetarian brunch, originally uploaded by yongtze. I have been eating a lot of pasta this few weeks. I wanted something rich and creamy but didn't feel like eating meat (because there was no meat in the fridge!). This is like a vegetarian version of carbonara and I think I might cook this more often than the real thing in the future =)
- 250g pasta of your choice - 2 zucchinis, diced 1.5 cm cubes - 1 garlic head, skinned and chopped fine - 3 egg yolk - 1 cup of grated parmesan/romano cheese - half cup of cream - light olive oil - salt and pepper 1.
Boil water in a large pot, adding some salt and oil. Once the water has
started to boil, add the pasta and cook until al dente.
Heat up a skillet and add 3 tablespoons of oil and the chopped garlic.
Cook with medium heat for about 2 minutes. Add diced zucchinis, stir and mix well with the garlic. Cover with a lid, cook for another 3-5 minutes or until the zucchinis are cooked. Open the lid from time to time to check and release some excess moisture.
4. Drain the pasta, return it into the pot, add egg yolk, cream, cheese to mix well with the pasta. Add in garlic and zucchinis mixture too to mix again. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
