Spaghetti with Zucchini and Basil

1.5 lbs. zucchini (@ 3 small)

1/3 – ½ C olive oil

2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced (or 2 tsp. minced garlic scapes)

Salt and pepper

1 lb. spaghetti

½ C grated Parmesan cheese

Handful of basil leaves, chopped

½ C half-and-half (or milk)

 

Bring a pot of water to boil for the pasta.

Meanwhile, quarter the zucchini lengthwise, then cut into ½-inch pieces. In a skillet, warm the oil with garlic, then add zucchini and season with salt and pepper. Cook gently over medium heat, stirring often until zucchini is soft and browned, about 20 minutes. Reduce heat, add half-and-half (or milk) and cook 10 additional minutes; stirring frequently.

Once water is boiling, cook spaghetti according to package directions. (For good timing, add pasta to water just before you add half-and-half to zucchini.) Drain and toss pasta with zucchini, cheese, and basil. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

NOTE: Instead of cutting zucchini, you can try grating it, using a peeler to create long strands, or spiralizing it.
