Penne with Zucchini

Yes, sometimes I do cook.

1 lb penne
3-4 large peeled zucchini - thin slices or diced
3 cloves garlic - diced
1 small red onion - diced
heavy cream
olive oil
grated Parmesan cheese
salt and black pepper

*Boil penne in a large pot of water.
( I have been known to throw a bouillon cube into the water so there is a slight , very slight flavor or saltiness to the plain pasta)
*In a large skillet, saute garlic in oil
*Add red onion
*When onion and garlic are softened,add a touch ( your taste) of cream
*Add zucchini.
*Add some butter, raise heat and stir while zucchini cooks, getting a bit of browness to it.
*Drain pasta, add to skillet with vegetables. Blend thoroughly.

*Add salt, pepper to taste.
*Serve with generous amounts of parmesan cheese

It is difficult to take a photo of food and have it look like anything .. thank you for saying that it looks good :)
It really was very tasty and so easy. Which is so important to me these days.. easy.
Pretty soon it will be all salads as I hate to cook in the summer heat.
