Zucchini Basil Spaghetti
Recipe type: Dinner; Pasta
Total time: 
Serves: 4
A light, fresh summer pasta perfect for highlighting beautiful zucchini!
  • 10 oz dried spaghetti
  • 3 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling
  • 2 medium zucchini, thinly sliced lengthwise
  • 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped or grated
  • 2 Tbsp chopped fresh basil
  • ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 6 oz. feta cheese, crumbled
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  1. Cook spaghetti according to package directions, stirring occasionally so the strands of pasta don't stick together. When the pasta is just cooked, drain it in a colander, and toss it with a little olive oil to lightly coat the pasta and prevent the strands from sticking together. Set it aside.
  2. For the sauce, in large pan (you can use the same one from the noodles), heat the 3 tablespoons of olive oil over medium heat. Add the zucchini and sauté for 4-5 minutes. Stir in the garlic and basil and sauté for a couple more minutes.
  3. Add the cooked spaghetti to the sauce pan and heat through, then mix in the cheese and lemon zest, and season with a little salt and plenty of black pepper.
  4. Serve with a little more grated cheese on top, or a sprinkle of fresh basil.
