Pasta is a kitchen cupboard staple that tastes good no matter how you prepare it. Top it with tomato sauce and meatballs, spread butter and cream on it, or toss it with veggies and chicken — you can’t go wrong! But if you really want to mix up your weeknight pasta, try the delicious recipe Martha Stewart just posted. It’s pasta like you’ve never seen it before, made with unique ingredients like mint and anchovies!
It’s possible sound strange, but Stewart’s pasta recipe looks like great in a photo she posted on Instagram Today. The curly gemelli noodles are topped with vegetables and cheese, which look fresh and filling.
“Here’s a weeknight pasta dish that’s a great way to use up the bounty of summer squash that’s now everywhere,” Stewart captioned the photo. “Grated zucchini, anchovies, garlic, and a splash of pasta water make for a summery, umami-packed sauce for gemelli.”
The Pasta with Zucchini, Mint and Pecorino recipe was originally published in the July/August 2014 issue of Martha Stewart Living. It’s made with curly pasta like gemelli, olive oil, anchovy fillets, shredded zucchini, finely grated pecorino Romano, and fresh mint leaves, among other ingredients.
To make it, start by cooking pasta al dente. Next, heat anchovies, zucchini, oil and other ingredients in a large skillet. Add pasta and let it simmer. Top with cheese, mint and more. This easy recipe takes a total of 35 minutes to prepare and cook, making it a perfect option for a busy evening.
‘Give me that gemelli! 😍” someone commented on Stewart’s Instagram post.
“Looks great!💕💕💕” another added.
The unique ingredients combine into something so flavorful that you won’t look at pasta in the same way anymore. And the ingredients hiding in cheese and pasta mean even the kids can eat it!
