This is a lovely dish, the thin green and orange strands of the vegetables twining themselves around the pasta. The flavor is delicate, which doesn’t mean it’s bland. Zucchini is a vegetable with a companionable personality that here makes an excellent match with the carrot and is receptive to the aromatic and spicy touch-ups contributed by the marjoram and chili pepper.
Homemade fettuccine are delicious with this fresh, buttery sauce. High-quality imported. Italian boxed dry pasta will also work well. If you choose the latter, the only shape to use is spaghetti.
