Another quick and easy dish with lots of deliciousness. Similar to my Pasta Piselli recipe..
What you will need:
2 small cans of tomato sauce - I recommend Redpack or Tutto Russo or Del Monte
1/2 Large Onion
3 cloves garlic
Grated Cheese - I recommend Locatelli or Pecorino Romano
3 cups of water
Let's get cooking:
In the Large Pot, add in your olive oil. Once the olive oil is heated add in your garlic and chopped onions.
Let them simmer for about 4 minutes on Medium heat. Now add in your Zucchini. You'll want your Zucchini cut in cubes. Not too big. Sir your mixture in the pot a couple of rounds. Add in your cans of tomato sauce, stir and cover for 5 minutes. Now add in about 3 cups of water. Cover on High. Once the mixture comes to a boil, add in your Rotelle. (feel free to use ditalini, or any smaller macaroni's).
For the important part! Some people like this dish soupy. Others like myself enjoy it more pasty!. If you want it soupy, add in another cup of water and leave the cover on the entire time while the macaroni is cooking and turn your heat to Med. If you want it pasty, cook with the cover on for 8 minutes on Med to high heat. Remove the cover after that time frame, leave heat as is. (stirring occasionally so that the macaroni doesn't stick together). If the mixture is still not getting pasty after 11 minutes, crank up your heat to high and let the water evaporate. Add in about a table spoon of grated cheese, salt and pepper to taste, mix and serve! This will be piping hot for sure, allow it to cool just a bit before you dig in!
