Directions

Cook the pasta according to the package instructions. While the pasta is cooking, sauté the zucchini slices in 1 tablespoon of olive oil, garlic, and salt and pepper over medium-high heat until the zucchini starts to brown, about 5-7 minutes. Toss the zucchini, almonds, pasta, and remaining olive oil together. Squeeze the juice of half the lemon over the pasta. Season with salt and pepper. Serve with a little Parmesan cheese, if desired.
