Preparation steps

1.

Cook pasta in plenty of boiling salted water until al dente, drain, rinse and drain again. Mix with 1 teaspoon olive oil and cut into 6 cm (approximately 2-1/2 inch) long pieces.

2.

Peel onions and garlic and finely chop. Rinse zucchini, cut in half and cut crosswise into slices. Rinse spinach and spin dry. Heat remaining olive oil in a pan and sauté onions and garlic until soft. Add zucchini and sauté until golden brown on both sides. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Drain tomatoes, dry with a paper towel and dice fine. Roast pine nuts in a dry frying pan. Using a cheese plane, slice off pieces of Parmesan.

3.

For the salad dressing, stir together olive oil, ketchup, tomato paste, vinegar, salt and pepper. Fold in herbs to taste. Add the salad ingredients, except the pine nuts and Parmesan, and mix together. Let sit 1 hour before serving. To serve, garnish with pine nuts and Parmesan.
