Fusilli with zucchini and mint

A simple yet delicate pasta dish. I have posted a similar pasta dish lately. This one comes out quite differently though. The mint in the sauce give the pasta a summery touch of freshness.

Spaghetti Bolognese – Vegetarian version

Feb 14th, 2010 | By | Category: Pasta & Gnocchi, Recipes

Was mich an der griechischen Fastenküche so begeistert ist, daß sie recht modern ist. Nicht daß Spaghetti Bolognese eine neue Erfindung wäre, aber die Verwendung von Bio-Sojagranulat, zu der die Authorin des Klosterküche Kochbuchs rät, ist eine sehr Zeitgemäße Zutat. Dieser Sugho ist ausgesprochen schmackhaft und Fleisch fehlt einem hierbei wirklich nicht. Den Käse habe [...]
