Laziness Factor: 1
[where 0 is eating a potato chip and 4 is discovering a new species]
Ingredients for 4 servings:
– 500g fusilli
– 100g mushrooms
– 1 zucchini
– 3-4 sun-dried tomatoes
– 150-200g blue cheese or Roquefort
– 2 garlic cloves
– salt, pepper, olive oil
Start by boiling the pasta in salted water as indicated on the package.
Heat some olive oil and then add the garlic, the mushrooms -chopped in halves or thirds- and the grated zucchini. Also add as much salt and pepper as you like.
In 5 minutes, add the cream, the cheese and the tomatoes cut in small pieces.
Hopefully, a couple of minutes later the pasta will be ready, so drain it, add it into the sauce and stir.
After serving, add some freshly ground pepper. You don’t need to add extra cheese.
Lazy pasta alternative:
If you’re not fond of blue cheese, try some fresh mozzarella, spanish queso fresco or greek feta (but don’t add extra salt in this last case).
