Hi guys!!! How are you??? I tried to post this recipe a few days ago but on the last working trip I got a really bad flu and I couldn't find the energy to write the recipe! This recipe is very light and yummy....
You have to try it!!! And it will be ready in just a few minutes, just the time to cook the pasta!
I used a special pasta. FiberPasta is a dietetic pasta having the same pleasant taste as traditional Italian pasta, despite containing 15% of fibre, that means more than twice the amount of fibre of dark whole-wheat pasta. FiberPasta is made with 98% durum wheat and the addition of 2% inulin (prebiotic soluble fibre). The high amount of soluble and insoluble fibre contained in FiberPasta is useful for DIABETES, OVERWEIGHT, CHOLESTEROL and CONSTIPATION.
But here is the recipe!!!
INGREDIENTS for  two:
160g pasta
1 big courgette
2 handful pine nuts
1 garlic clove
Chopped parsley
Extra virgin olive oil ( I used DANTE organic extra virgin olive oil 100% italian)
1 handful grated parmesan cheese
100ml single cream
Speck (Italian smoked ham)
Salt


Start by cooking the pasta in salted  boiling water. Cook for just a few minutes the courgette in salted boiling water.  Then blend all the ingredient until you get a smooth cream, season with salt.
In a large pan cook for a few minutes the speck ham and set aside.
In the same pan heat the cream and let reduce a bit, add the courgette pesto mix and then toss the pasta with the sauce. Sprinkle with the crispy speck and serve immediately!
