Pasta with Parmesan and Garlic Zucchini - light, delicious, Summer recipe. I use regular spaghetti pasta, cook sliced zucchini in olive oil and garlic and then combined cooked pasta with garlic zucchini and lots of 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.
