Pennette con Fiori di Zucchine
12 small zucchini with the blossoms still attached, about 1 pound
¼ pound sliced penette, cut into small strips
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 cup dry white wine
½ cup chicken broth, preferably homemade
1 cup heavy cream
Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
1 pound pennette, penne rigate, or shells
1 cup freshly grated parmigiano
- Detach the zucchini blossom from the zucchini. Remove the stems and pistils from the blossoms; wash gently under cold water and drain on paper towels. Slice the blossoms lengthwise into four pieces, Heat the oil and butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the pancetta and cook until the pancetta is lightly golden, 1 to 2 minutes. Add the zucchini blossoms and garlic to the skillet and toss briefly. Stir in the wine and cook until it is almost all reduced, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the broth and cream, season with salt and pepper, and cook until the sauce has a medium-thick consistency, about 4 minutes.
- While the sauce is cooking, bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add 1 tablespoon of salt and the pasta. Cook until the pasta is tender but still firm to the bite, al dente.
- Drain the pasta and add it to the skillet. Mix well over medium heat until the sauce thickens and is well combined with the pasta. Serve with a generous sprinkling of freshly grated parmagiano
