How to Make It

Step 1

Cook the pasta according to the package directions. Reserve 1 cup of the cooking water, drain the pasta, and return it to the pot.

Step 2

Meanwhile, heat the oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add the zucchini, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper.

Step 3

Cook, stirring, until the zucchini is tender and any liquid has evaporated, about 5 minutes.

Step 4

Stir in the garlic and cook 1 minute more.

Step 5

Add all but 2 tablespoons of the cheese to the pasta. Add the reserved cooking water, ¾ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper. Stir until creamy.

Step 6

Serve the pasta topped with the zucchini, lemon zest, and remaining 2 tablespoons cheese.
