Simple Pasta

I guess doing a ten hour shift was not enough cooking for me today, so I make pasta from scratch! First basic pasta dough is rolled out thin and cut into wide strips, I do the same with green and yellow zucchini, then I blanch in salted water the pasta and vegetables, then into ice water to stop the cooking, drain well. Next I saute sliced shallots in a little olive oil and butter. Next add the pasta and vegetables, toss gently and when hot its time to plate. Shaved cheese on mine and its done. Light and healthy.
