Peel 1 onion, finely dice. Clean and wash the spring onions, cut into thin slices. Wash the zucchini, clean. Long thin slices, then cut very obliquely into long strips.

Wash 2 sprigs of mints, shake dry. Set aside 2 branches. Peel leaves of remaining mint sprigs and finely chop.

Cook 3 penne in plenty of bubbly boiling salted water.

Fry 4 onion cubes in a large pan in hot oil for about 3 minutes until glassy. Add zucchini, sauté briefly while stirring. Add leek onions, fry for a short time. Add finely chopped mint and cream, simmer gently for about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

Mix 5 pence dripping wet with the zucchini, season to taste. Roughly grate salted ricotta over. Dab mint leaves to taste. TIP: Ricotta salata is available at well-stocked cheese counters or in Italian supermarkets. Instead you can take about 40 g of planed pecorino.
