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!!!
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)

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!
