Entered for safe-keeping. From Martha Rose Schulman's Fast Vegetarian Feasts, received in February 2009 Cookbook Swap. This is based on Italian Pasta Aglio e Olio (pasta with oil and garlic), adding zucchini that has been cut in matchsticks and briefly steamed, then tossed with the pasta and the oil, garlic, and Parmesan cheese. Although the author says 2-3 teaspoons of finely minced garlic is a lot, I would tend to add more, just because... DH and I love garlic.
