Italian pasta recipe with zucchini, onions, eggs and mediterranean scents

I experimented this really Italian pasta recipe last weekend, we spent a very pleasant couple of days with friends on Maggiore Lake in the north of Italy, and of course we cooked together. This Italian dish is by Luciana and it is really fantastic! The idea behind this is to put together the very soft flavor of zucchini with the harder touch of the eggs, everything kept together with the scent of mediterrean erbs.


My personal suggestion is to try and prepare this incredible Italian pasta recipe in the Spring, when the ingredients are at the top of their freshness!

To be paired with an intense red wine!
