This pasta recipe is the ultimate summer dish! My entire family goes crazy for it. I accidentally overcooked some zucchini once and saw that it turned a bit mushy, almost like a sauce and immediately thought it would be delicious over pasta. And it was!! I taught this recipe in a class early last summer and received rave reviews from my students too! After I filmed the class, I saw a similar recipe on Smitten Kitchen for “zucchini butter spaghetti.” It is a pure coincidence and I came up with this recipe on my own. My recipe uses quite a bit more zucchini, less butter and cheese, and the addition of shallot and lemon which I think makes the dish!
