Number of Servings: 4


    * 12 ounces (3/4 of the box) linguine
    * 1 tablespoon olive oil
    * 1 pound zucchini, sliced into thin half-moons
    * kosher salt and pepper
    * 1 clove garlic, chopped
    * 5 ounces fresh goat cheese, crumbled
    * 2 teaspoons grated lemon zest


1. Cook the pasta according to the package directions. Reserve 1 cup of the cooking water, drain the pasta, and return it to the pot.

2. Heat the oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add the zucchini, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper and cook, stirring, until the zucchini is tender and any liquid has evaporated, about 5 minutes. Stir in the garlic and cook 1 minute more.

3. Add all but 2 tablespoons of the cheese to the pasta. Add the reserved pasta water, 3/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Stir until creamy. Serve the pasta topped with the zucchini, lemon zest, and the remaining cheese.
