About this Recipe

Fresh and colourful, the perfect summer meal. The sweetness of caramelized onions and zucchini with salty salami and smoky roasted peppers. A sprinkle of cheese and fresh herbs to top it all off.


1/2 lb (225 g) Penne or your favourite pasta
2 tbsp (30 mL) Butter
2 tbsp (30 mL) Olive oil
1 Large onion, thinly sliced
1 lb Schneiders® Deli Best Dry Salami, thinly sliced into strips
1 Zucchini, grated
1 Roasted red pepper, thinly sliced
Salt and pepper
1/3 cup (80 mL) Grated Pecorino or Parmesan cheese
1 tbsp (15 mL) Chopped fresh oregano


COOK pasta in plenty of boiling, salted water for about 9 minutes or until al dente. Drain well and reserve 1 cup (250 mL) of the pasta water.

HEAT butter and oil in a large skillet over medium. Add onion and cook, stirring occasionally for 15-20 minutes or until nicely caramelized. Stir in salami strips followed by zucchini and roasted peppers. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Stir in pasta and add pasta water, ¼ cup (60 mL) at a time. Cook until sauce coats the pasta adding more pasta water as needed.

SPRINKLE with Pecorino cheese and chopped fresh oregano.
