I love this as a side dish, or even a full meal if you are looking for something light. Take my advice though and serve it right away, no dawdling! It cools quickly and tastes better when hot or quite warm in my opinion.

- 12 ounces shredded zucchini
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 3 tablespoons parmesan cheese

- While pasta is cooking, heat oil in a small skillet over medium heat.
- Add garlic and cook until just starting to turn golden.
