Zucchini Lemon Pasta

Pin It
This is my favorite pasta recipe of all time. It's so simple. Just a few ingredients, but tons of flavor. It's from Moosewood Restaurant Cooks at Home.
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 3 medium zucchinis, sliced thin
  • 6 basil leaves, julienned
  • juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • 1/2 cup of Pecorino cheese, grated
  • 1/2 pound of pasta
  • salt and pepper
Saute garlic and sliced zucchinis in olive oil until zucchinis are soft, about 5-10 minutes. Add lemon juice, basil leaves, salt and pepper to taste. Toss together with pasta and Pecorino cheese. That's it!

As a side dish, we had chickpea celery salad. Just a can of chickpeas, tossed together with chopped celery, parsley, red bell pepper, onion, lemon juice, lemon zest, chili powder, olive oil, salt and pepper. I have to remember to leave out the onion next time. I don't want to taste raw onions in my mouth for the next two days.

  1. I made the Zucchini Lemon pasta last night. Delicious and the kids (3 of them) ate without whining and complaining. Big hit, will def make this one again. As a matter of fact I recommended this recipe to my vegetarian aunt.
