Zucchini Tagliatelle with Basil Pesto

Zucchini Tagliatelles with Basil Pesto

One day I realized that there´s 5 zucchinis in my fridge. My mum has just so many zucchinis in her garden. So, when there´s a season then I can eat zucchinis almost every day if I would like. However, I don´t mind. There are so many ways of using zucchinis. I remember that when I was travelling in Russia I learned so many new recipes for zucchini. Russian housewives are just masters of using zucchini or eggplant. In the summertime, you can find zucchini on the snack table covered with mayo, basil and tomato. The zucchini is hidden in the soup, stew or it´s just grilled next to the meat. The secret ingredient in their zucchini dishes is garlic. It´s just must be there to bring the best out of zucchini.
