Easy, healthy and quick. Great for a weeknight meal.
Large Zucchini, sliced & quartered
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Whole Wheat Fusilli or Rotini Pasta
Fat-free Feta Cheese
Freshly Ground Pepper
Cook whole-wheat pasta according to instructions.
Meanwhile, heat 2 TBSP olive oil in a large skillet on low/medium heat. Chop 1 clove of garlic and add to olive oil. Brown garlic for 1-2 minutes. Add sliced, quartered zucchini pieces to skillet and combine with garlic & olive oil. Add salt and pepper. Let these cook until browned but keep them firm, not mushy, approximately 6 minutes. Add lemon juice and remaining 2 TBSP olive oil to skillet. Add cooked pasta, tossing thoroughly with other ingredients. Mix in feta cheese and additional salt & pepper to taste.
yummy! i love me some feta cheese! i bet this would be a big hit at an office potluck, as it is good cold with a bit of balsamic or italian dressing

A vegetarian version of this family dinner favorite!
This recipe has alcohol in the marinade. Beer and worcestershire sauce with seansonings. I let mine marinade for at least 2hrs. Longer is always better.
The name is a mouthful but after you get a mouthful of this dish you won't care if someone asks you to say it 5 times fast.
