* 1 lb. (450 g.) linguine pasta
* 1 Zucchini, sliced in strips
* 1 clove of garlic
* parmesan cheese
* 1 yellow bell pepper
* 1 red bell pepper
* 1 bunch parsley

(Spiralized beet seen on photo - this is optional but so spectacular!)

Cooking instructions:

1) Fry the sliced mushrooms in a skillet with very hot oil, until they are completely fried and have reduced in size significantly; this will take a few minutes. Reserve the mushrooms.

2) In the same skillet, reduce heat setting and cook the zucchini until cooked but still a bit crunchy.

3) Meanwhile let's prepare the peppers: cut ou their stems, cut them in half, remove the seeds and white filaments, wash them, dry them and make them roast on a grill for 10-15 minutes. Once cooked slice into strips.

4) Roast the pine nuts on a baking sheet in the oven without any seasoning, slice the pitted black olives into small slices

6) Cook your linguine pasta in plenty of boiling salted water, following package instructions. Meanwhile wash, dry and chop the basil leaves.

7) In a serving bowl, mix the pine nuts, the olives and peppers. Spice it up with a pinch of salt and grinding some fresh black pepper.

8) Pour 5 tablespoons oil in a large pan and heat it up, add in the garlic, peeled and finely chopped and fry for a few moments. Add the linguine (already cooked al dente and drained), and toss a few moments to coat them well in the garlic and oil.

9) Transfer the linguine to the bowl with the vegetables, mix well and serve, decorate with some spiralized beet and some freshly grated Parmesan...
