Spoonacular is a recipe search engine that sources recipes from across the web. We do our best to find recipes suitable for many diets — whether vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, etc. — but we cannot guarantee that a recipe's ingredients are safe for your diet. Always read ingredient lists from the original source (follow the link from the "Instructions" field) in case an ingredient has been incorrectly extracted from the original source or has been labeled incorrectly in any way. Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

We also attempt to estimate the cost and calculate the nutritional information for the recipes found on our site. Again, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information. Additionally, our nutrition visualizer that suggests that you limit sodium, sugar, etc., and get enough protein, vitamins, and minerals is not intended as medical advice. Similarly, our health tips are based on articles we have read from various sources across the web, and are not based on any medical training. The team behind spoonacular does not possess any medical qualifications and the information may be found to be incorrect or out of date based on future research. If you need help planning your diet or determining which foods (and recipes) are safe for you, contact a registered dietitian, allergist, or another medical professional.

Instructions

  1. Cut the zucchini in half-moons, the onion in slices and the cherry tomatoes in half.
  2. On a large skillet, warm up the butter and vegetable oil, add the onion and cook it until slightly softened. The zucchini goes in, along with the minced garlic, dried thyme, red pepper flakes, salt and pepper.
  3. Once the zucchini is cooked but still crisp, add the tomato paste and the wine. Let it boil and reduce until it thickens.
  4. Toss in the cooked penne, cherry tomatoes and a bit of pasta water (to help the sauce bind) and top with minced basil.
