Nutritional values

Zucchini belongs to the pumpkin family and brings a mildly nutty aroma to pasta, and in addition to the taste, the vegetables also have a lot to offer in terms of health: They are rich in potassium and relatively high in iron. Thanks to vitamin C from the zucchini, the body can absorb the iron particularly well.

Crunchy pine nuts also taste wonderful with it. Roast the seeds in a hot pan without fat at medium heat for 3 minutes and sprinkle over the finished pasta.
