Zucchini Recipe Pasta And Ricotta

I made this zucchini recipe pasta and ricotta when I went to the market in Ventimiglia and found the first zucchini Trombetta of the season.

The zucchini Trombetta are long and curved zucchini shaped like a trumpet and they are typical of the Italian Ligurian region.

They are crunchy and have a distinctive flavour and if you want to know more about it you can read my article:
The Amazing Zucchini Trombetta Albenga

In the article, you will find additional zucchini recipes and you can make them with any regular zucchini.

If I cannot find zucchini Trombetta, I always buy small zucchini as they have fewer seeds and they are not too watery.

    I’ve never used ricotta cheese in pasta like this before… this looks super tasty! I can’t wait for baby zucchini to be available again too! Looking forward to warner weather. 🙂
