Zucchini has been on my mind lately, mainly because a huge zucchini has been sitting in my fridge for quite some time begging to be used and not wasted. The zucchini was really huge, similar in size to this jumbo zucchini (scroll down and you’ll see the zucchini on her head 🙂 ). I wanted to take some funny pictures with it too, but instead I’ve made this delicious Parmesan Zucchini & Garlic Pasta:
The dish came out so delicious – I couldn’t get enough of it:

I’ve used gluten-free spaghetti for this recipe (Tinkyada brand), but, of course, you can use regular spaghetti, too. It was a very tasty (and healthy) Saturday dinner.
8 ounces spaghetti (for gluten free version, use Tinkyada brown rice pasta spaghetti style)
salt and pepper
1 cup freshly shredded Parmesan cheese
Heat olive oil in a large skillet on medium-high heat. Add sliced zucchini and minced garlic and saute for about 5-7 minutes, occasionally stirring, until zucchini softens and browns a bit, uncovered. Midway through cooking, season with salt. Note: Depending on the size of your skillet, you might have to cook zucchini in 2 separate batches.
Cook pasta according to pasta instructions. Drain and rinse with cold water (to stop pasta from cooking). Add cooked pasta into the skillet with zucchini and garlic, on low heat. Add freshly shredded Parmesan cheese into the skillet and stir pasta on low heat to melt the cheese. Add salt and pepper, to taste.
