Corallini pasta with courgette in sweet and sour tomato sauce

When it's getting warmer, all I want is somethig light. That is why I decided to use up all winter vegetables from my fridge and move on spring vegetables. Courgettes or zucchini are not in season at the moment, but in Turkey you can get them all year round. And I am really enjoying them. A handfull of Corallini pasta made it taste even better. Those little pasta balls feel like little pearls!!! Love them!

What we need:

3 small courgetter
2 tbsp of olive oil
bay leaf
thyme
8 cloves of garlic
3 tbsp of white vinegar
½ taspoon of salt
½ teaspoon of sugar
black pepper
200 ml tomato sauce or 1 tbsp of tomato paste and water
200 gr of corallini pasta or any other small pasta

What we have to do:

1. Cut courgettes into small cubes, put them in a pan with olive oil and saute until they start to get softer for about 5 minutes.
2. Then add vinegar, salt, sugar, pepper, thyme, bay leaf, and tomato sauce. Stir and simmer for other 5 minutes.
3. Finally add chopped garlic and cook for 2 more minutes.
4. Serve with boiled pasta and enjoy!
