Pasta Tombaszu

A light, yet satisfying pasta dish.


Cook linguine according to package directions. Run under cold water to prevent sticking.

Cut zucchini into 1-inch rounds, cut these rounds in half along their lengths, and then slice perpendicular to this cut into 1/8 inch pieces. You should end up with slices of zucchini approximately 1" x 1" x 1/8". This is called cutting zu squash laur-style.

Heat oil in a skillet on medium high. Add onions, garlic and celery and sauté about 8 minutes until onion is soft.

Add zucchini, tomato, basil, salt and pepper. Sauté another six to eight minutes until zucchini softens and tomato breaks up.

Serve sauce over linguine, with a sprig of parsley.

Serves four or so.
