Steps

1
Done

Clean the cucuzza and cut it into round slices. Add salt and place them in a colander for 15 minutes so that they lose their vegetation liquid.

2
Done

Crush the garlic cloves with the palm of your hand, peel them and place them in the frying pan where you have poured a generous amount of oil.

3
Done

Fry the courgettes a little at a time and place them on a plate. Once done, turn off the heat and remove the garlic (or eventually remove it first if it burns!)

4
Done

Cook the pasta in plenty of boiling salted water. Once done, drain it and remember to set aside a small amount of cooking water - this is super important!

5
Done

Pour the pasta into the pan with the oil in which you have fried the courgettes, which you have heated up in the meantime. Stir-fry the pasta over low heat, add the cucuzza slice and the mint, which you have broken up with your hands, and mix. Remember to add a little cooking water to avoid the pasta to dry up too much.

6
Done

Serve and, if you like, grate some pecorino onto the pasta! Another good choice could be Parmigiano of course or even ricotta salata!
