  • 1 bunch (about 16 ounces) radishes
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil divided
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • 1 medium onion
  • 1 medium zucchini
  • 1 large tomato
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • Pinch Italian seasoning
  • 1 cup heavy/whipping cream
  • 6 leaves fresh basil
  • 8 ounces uncooked pappardelle pasta


  1. Pre-heat oven to 450F. Cut radishes in half and add to a baking dish with 1 tablespoon olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and salt & pepper. Toss so the radishes are coated. Roast for 20-30 minutes, depending on the size of the radishes. Mine were larger, so I left them for 30 minutes. They should be tender-crisp once they're done.
  2. Meanwhile, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook pappardelle according to package directions as you're making the sauce.
  3. Add 1 tablespoon of olive oil to a skillet or frying pan on medium heat. Chop the onion and add it to the pan. Cook for about five minutes, stirring occasionally.
  4. Meanwhile, slice the zucchini and then add it to the pan. Cover and cook for 8-10 minutes on medium-low heat, stirring once halfway through, until it's tender.
  5. Chop the tomato finely and add it to the pan along with the garlic, Italian seasoning, and the cream. Cook on medium heat for 8-10 minutes until the sauce is slightly thickened, stirring occasionally. Add the radishes once they're done. Add the fresh basil (tear it by hand). Add salt & pepper if desired.
  6. When the pasta is cooked, add it to the pan and toss with the sauce. Serve with freshly grated parmesan cheese.
