Zucchini Basil Pasta
Dry or home made pasta about 8 oz
1-3 small zucchini, julienned
2 cloves of garlic minced
1/4-1/2 cup low fat ricotta (I used more towards the lesser amount)
1/4 cup torn fresh basil (I didn't pick any up so I used about 1 Tsp or so of Dried)
Cook pasta according to directions, add zucchini to pasta water 1 minute before cooking time is up.
Meanwhile in another bowl, mix ricotta basil and garlic. Stir in drained pasta and zucchini. Season with Salt and pepper if desired.
