Good meal of multi-colored, multi-flavored strozapretti, pictured above before cooking. The package contained plain, basil, spinach, tomato, beet and squid ink pasta. While it cooked we cut a zucchini into cubes and sauteed it in some olive oil with garlic and a touch of oregano. When the pasta was done it went into the skillet with a small amount of chopped tomato and some grated cheese. Salt and black pepper finished the dish. The wine was the remainder of the bottle of Gavi discussed a few posts below. The wine had faded a little, but it was still crisp and drinkable and was a good match for a warm meal on a cold night.
