Traveling around the blogosphere, I kept seeing the icon for "Presto Pasta Nights." The name of the event is so catchy; it's hard to forget.
One weekday last week, we came home to no dinner prepared and we were looking for something quick to eat. Very, very hungry, you see.
We had zucchinis and some grape tomatoes sitting around and presto!
Here it is, our entry for Presto Pasta Nights.
I infused some olive oil with garlic (starting the pan cold and adding the garlic from the start), then added some anchovies. It was then a simple matter of sweating sliced onions and zucchini. The grape tomatoes went in last.
The bucatini was a tad too heavy for the delicate ingredients. We were thinking of doing the dish with spaghetti first, but I remembered we had bucatini as well that we wanted to use up.
We also realized we still had some feta, so we added some chunks of feta to the dish. Brilliant! The feta enlivened the dish.
A great summer-y pasta.
This is our first Presto Pasta Nights post. The first of many, I hope.
This week's host is Ruth of Once Upon a Feast.
