Linguini with zucchini in blue cheese sauce

Linguini with zucchini in blue cheese sauce

FROM: william





Perfect dish for the Vegetarians


1 Tbsp. butter
2 tsps. flour
2 fat cloves garlic
½ small onion
½ cup milk (skim is fine)
1 oz. or so hunk of blue cheese, chopped small, or about 3 Tbsp. crumbled
1 medium zucchini
½ lb. linguini
crushed red pepper


1 Throw a pot of water on the stove and bring to a boil for the pasta. Once it's bubbling, toss in your linguini and cook until al dente.

2 While you're waiting for the water to boil, cut the zucchini into 2" long matchsticks. Mince up the garlic and finely dice the onion.

3 Heat the butter in a skillet over medium heat; add the garlic and onion and cook for a couple of minutes, until the veggies begins to soften.

4 Stir in the flour and cook, stirring continuously for another minute or two. Add the milk and cheese and continue to cook for another couple of minutes, until you have a nice smooth sauce.

5 Stir in the zucchini and cook for another 2-3 minutes, letting the sauce bubble at a gentle simmer (but not fully boil). Don't worry if the mixture seems very thick at first; as the zucchini cooks down, it'll release some water.

6 Season with salt and pepper to suit your tastebuds, and sprinkle with a smattering of crushed red pepper. Toss with drained, cooked pasta and enjoy.
