Ingredients: (for 2 persons)

  • 150 gr. pasta (tagliatelle – preferably fresh)
  • 150 gr. shrimps
  • 2 zucchini
  • 6 cherry tomatoes
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1/2 glass of white wine (dry)
  • olive oil ‘extra vergine’
  • pepper, salt

How to prepare:

Wash the zucchini and grate them (no need to peel them). Clean the shrimps, cut the cherry tomatoes in half and peel the garlic cloves.

Heat a bit of oil in a skillet over moderate heat. Add the garlic cloves and stir fry until they turn golden brown. Don’t let them get burned! Then remove them. Add the grated zucchini and leave them for 10 minutes over low heat. Then add the cherry tomatoes for another 5 minutes. After that you add the shrimps and the wine. Leave it on the stove over low heat.

Meanwhile, bring a large pan of water to boil. Once it boils add some salt and then the pasta. If it’s fresh pasta leave it for only 2 minutes and then drain the pasta. For every other type of pasta: leave it for 2 minutes less than the instructions tell you! Add the pasta to the skillet and leave it for another 2 minutes while adding some pepper…



    1. No I don’t!! Just leave them as they are only cut them in half…that’s enough (after washing them ofcourse 😉 ) For pasta dishes I only use cherry tomatoes never any other type!

  1. Hello there… I will definitely be trying this one. I visited A’dam last year. LOVED the country. I was there for Queens Day. Whew. lol.
    Just a bit curious… how many languages do you speak? My friend from A’dam speaks like 5 and that is hard for me to wrap my brain around. Here in Texas we aren’t exposed to alot of different languages like you guys across the pond. Here in Dallas I would say we are only exposed to two on a regular basis: English and Spanish. Anyway, I am subscribed to your blog now. Looking forward to your posts.

    1. Thank you very much Christi for following my blog and leaving a comment! I really appreciate it.
      Amsterdam on Queens Day is fabulous and most chaotic!! But a wonderful experience if you ask me! 🙂
      I speak 3 languages fluently (Dutch…my mothertongue, English and Italian), I do speak French but not fluently or at least not anymore….and I do understand and speak a bit of German…
      Well, hope you will continue enjoying my posts and thanks again!
