Step 1

Start boiling the pasta water. Cut the zucchini down the middle, then slice into thin half-moons. Chop the garlic finely. Grate the parmesan.

Step 2

In a pan, add the zucchini and half of the garlic with a little bit of water. Cover, and let steam until zucchini is almost cooked, stirring frequently.

Step 3

Once the zucchini is almost cooked and the water has evaporated, add the rest of the garlic, a teaspoon of pepperoncino, a good glug of olive oil, and salt. Stir until the garlic is cooked.

Step 4

When the pasta is cooked, top with the zucchini mixture and add freshly grated parmesan.
