Zucchini Cream Sauce (with photo)
« on: May 31, 2010, 08:10:01 pm »

Hi everyone

Today I've added English versions of the recipes also in my blog. I am hoping to translate all the recipes with time. When I do, I will post them here as well.

This one is a very tasty sauce. When I first made it I didn't imagine that it would turn out so nice considering that there are only zucchini and it is also quite light!

I hope you like it as much as we do

Zucchini Cream Sauce:
Ingredients:

350g zucchini (chopped into chunks)
120g milk
30g EVO
40g grated parmesan
1 clove of garlic
Salt

Preparation:

Put EVO and garlic in the TM bowl and warm for 2 minutes at 100įC on Speed 5
Add zucchini. Cook for 10 minutes at 100įC on Reverse/Soft Speed
Add milk. Cook for 10 minutes at 100įC on Soft Speed
Add some salt and grated parmesan. Blend it for 20 seconds on Speed 8
Mix it with pasta and serve into the plates
Sprinkle with some parmesan if you like

Buon Appetito

It was my husband's idea in fact. And now my brother in law is asking me to make also Italian versions of the recipes! :)

This sounds like a great way of getting zucchini into the kids.  Might have to try instead of normal cheese sauce over the vegies.

Thanks farfallina - for the recipe, which sounds great and simple; for the English versions on the blog; and, for even thinking that you might do an Italian version for il cognato.

Thanks for converting this recipe. I was looking for something easy and had a few zucchini left in my fridge and this was just the thing. The family loved it. Very creamy indeed. We needed to sprinkle parmesan on top as the zucchini was a little bitter. Everyone still ate it. I might use this next time as the sauce for a pasta bake.

Thanks for bumping this one Sue, I had forgotten to print it out and it was something I had wanted to put on my 'to do' list.

I use this one as pasta sauce Sue
I really recommend it with pasta
It is very nice and also budget-friendly ;)
As a person who is in love with cheese, i always sprinkle with some grated parmesan

judy let me know when you try it ;)

I made this a few weeks ago (DS gave me a box of zucchini)

My zia (aunty) gave me this recipe minus the milk about 20 years ago. I add blue cheese and cook it for about 40 mins with the MC on, I leave mine chucky
If the zucchini are big I add onions, onions gives the sauce a nice sweetness which the kids love

I agree with farfallina best to use with any type of pasta

Can be frozen .Any type of cheese that melts will do or leave it out

I also made zucchini schnitzel, dip in flour,egg,bread crumbs and fry

Did not think to post, thinking it was to simple and plain

ciao

Nothing is too simple for this forum fundj - sometimes people are looking for an ultra-quick meal and one which doesn't have many ingredients. 

Farfallina, I will most certainly post a review when I do your recipe.

I missed this too. :'( I've now printed it off. It would be a nice Sunday tea.

fundj, you can post anything as judy said
I like simple recipes. We don't always have enough time or will to cook gourmet recipes :)
I like cooking different things every time. They don't have to be fancy or complicated. Even if they are slightly different i enjoy to try new recipes
I will surely try your version
As blue cheese do you use gorgonzola?
And as onions, you use red onions?
One last question :) Could you give us also the amounts of the ingredients?
