Trying to eat healthier, but don’t want to give up your favorite carb entrées? This light pasta dish is a simple way to ease into cutting back on flour, by substituting ribbons of squash for some of the pasta. Fresh herbs and ricotta salata add flavor to this light dish. Try it with our easy pesto recipe to add an Italian twist.
Beverage pairing: A delicious but inexpensive white composed of varying percentages of Viognier, Grenache Blanc, and Clairette from the South of France would provide just enough body to stand up to the pasta and ricotta salata, and the freshness and delicate herbal qualities present in some of the best examples would complement the zucchini and pine nut components of this dish.
