DIRECTIONS

  • Wash and dry the zucchini and trim the ends. Slice zucchini into thin disks about 1/4-inch thick. Set the zucchini slices aside.
  • In a large saucepan, heat the olive oil, add a layer of zucchini and cook or "poach" like chips. Remove zucchini and drain. Repeat with remaining zucchini.
  • Place zucchini into a serving bowl.
  • Add the garlic and scallions to the saucepan and cook until they are soft and golden brown. Add the red wine vinegar and let cook until the vinegar evaporates, about 2 minutes.
  • Toss into the bowl with the zucchini.
  • Fill a heavy-bottomed saucepan with 6 quarts water and bring to a boil. Add 2 tablespoons salt, stirring to dissolve. Cook the spaghetti according to the package directions, until tender but still al dente. Drain the pasta.
  • Toss the pasta with the zucchini, and add salt and pepper, to taste. Add the ricotta and the Pecorino.
  • Serve immediately garnished with red chili flakes and chopped parsley.
