Ingredients for 4 persons:

  • 250 g pasta, e.g. penne, farfalle or conchiglie
  • 60 ml olive oil or Ghee
  • a pinch of Asafetida (Hing)
  • 200 g green beans, cleaned and chopped
  • 320 g zucchini or summer squash, cubed or chopped
  • a pinch of rock salt

For the topping:

  • 2 tbsp of olive oil
  • a pinch of Asafetida (Hing)
  • 90 g breadcrumbs
  • 30 g coarsely chopped basil leaves
  • 30 g coarsely chopped parsley
  • 15 g coarsely chopped mint leaves
  • a pinch of black pepper


Cook the pasta according to the instructions on the package, drain the water and keep it warm. Gently heat the 60 ml of olive oil or Ghee together with a pinch of asafetida (Hing) in a frying pan. Add the green beans, cover, and sauté for about 2 to 3 minutes.

Add the zucchini or pumpkin pieces, salt and let simmer (covered) until the vegetables are cooked. Stir occasionally.
