- 1 Pound Pasta, I like to use spaghetti or linguine
- 1/4 Cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- 4 Large Garlic Cloves, minced
- 2 Medium Zucchini
- 1/2 Cup Grated Vegan Parmesan Cheese
- Salt and Pepper, to taste
- Bring a large pot of water to a rolling boil. Salt the water. Cook pasta according the the package directions. Once the pasta is done, drain and set aside.
- Put 2 or 3 layers of paper towels or a dish towel on a work surface. Working on the paper towels or the towel, shred zucchinis using a box grater holding the zucchini at an angle. Carefully wrap the zucchini up in the towels and squeeze out as much water as possible. I like to do this over the sink.
- Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add extra-virgin olive oil to the pan Add minced garlic to the oil. Cook until the garlic is fragrant; 30 seconds to a minute.
- Add the shredded zucchini. Season zucchini with salt and pepper. Saute the zucchini 7 to 10 minutes.
- Add the drained pasta to the pan. Toss pasta in with zucchini.
- Add in the shredded vegan parmesan. Taste and adjust seasonings if needed.
