Zucchini Pasta Recipe / Zucchini Tomato Pasta Recipe



Pasta is one of my favourite to cook mostly for dinner. I find it to be so satisfying and so easy to put together. My top favourite is tomato based ones and my sister loves her white sauce pasta a lot. Zucchini is my latest favourite veggie and i love to add it in pasta a lot because it gives the crunchy taste to it and it goes perfect with that.
