An easy modification on the original recipe for grain and gluten free!!! Agretti is not easily found but worth getting when you can!!
  • 3 Tablespoon organic extra virgin oilve oil
  • 3 garlic cloves, sliced thin
  • zest and juice of 1 organic lemon
  • 1 bunch agretti
  • 2 large zucchini for the live pasta
  1. Rinse and dry the agretti, then remove all tough stems and chop into 1" pieces
  2. In a nonstick pan heat the olive oil with the garlic slices.
  3. Cook until garlic turns brown but not burnt.
  4. Add the agretti and cook stirring for 5 minutes.
  5. After turning off the fire, add lemon juice and stir well.
  6. In the meantime spiral or grate the zucchini to make your "noodles". ( I like my noodles raw, but you can briefly saute them in olive oil if you prefer).
  7. Divide the zucchini in 2 plates.
  8. Add the agretti on top.
  9. Top with the lemon zest and serve immediately!
  10. Add the lemon zest
