1/2 pound of pasta (spaghetti, linguine, fettuccine are best)
2 large cloves of garlic
1/2 cup olive oil
red pepper flakes
sea salt
black pepper
parmigiano or pecorino grated cheese

Wash and slice zucchini with skin on into 1/4 inch thick round slices. In large frying pan, heat olive oil. Add zucchini with a pinch of salt and black pepper. Sear each side on med-high heat. Turn over the rounds when brown on the bottom. Add garlic and red pepper when searing the second side. Put aside when finished.
