I’m guessing by now you know I’m a little obsessed with pasta. Most of my pasta recipes are inspired from my childhood. Growing up in Italian restaurants I watched my Mum and Auntie cook hundreds of bowls of pasta. And there is something just so comforting about a bowl of homemade pasta.
This particular creation is one I conjured up in my mind, so I’ve named it ‘Spaghetti alla Fi Fi” (a nickname my family gave me many moons ago).
I’ve never put carrot in a pasta sauce before but surprisingly this really works. And it’s great with spaghetti and the julienne carrot and zucchini pair so beautifully with spaghetti. It’s a tad sweet, a tad salty with a chili after taste.
TIP: always add a teaspoon or two of salt to the water before boiling the pasta.
