  • 3/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 large zucchini diced
  • 2 garlic cloves thinly sliced
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp red pepper flakes crushed
  • 12 oz linguine pasta
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 2 tbsp fresh parsley chopped
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese freshly grated


  • Warm the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. 
  • Add the zucchini and garlic in the skillet and season them with salt and red pepper flakes. 
  • Cook everything for about 20 minutes, stirring the ingredients occasionally until the zucchini is well browned on all sides. 
  • Meanwhile, bring a large pot of liberally salted water to boil.
  • Pour the pasta into the pot and boil it for about 8 to 10 minutes. When finished, drain the water and set the pot aside.
  • Pour the milk into the skillet with the zucchini and stir. Simmer the skillet's contents for 10 minutes until the milk is half-reduced.
  • Add the pasta into the skillet and stir well. Then sprinkle some parsley and 1/4 cups of parmesan cheese and toss occasionally for about 10 minutes.
  • Once you're finished, garnish the linguine with the remaining Parmesan cheese and serve.
