  • Summary

    I realize that this seems almost too simple to mention, but it is such a perfect dish, and a good solution to a high-summer extravagance of zucchini and mint. And unlike some pasta dishes, it is light enough for a first course. I grate an additional bit of lemon zest over the finished dish.

    Ingredients

    • Salt
    • 1 pound fettuccine
    • 4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
    • 3 or 4 garlic cloves, finely chopped or grated
    • Zest of 1 to 2 lemons
    • 2 medium- large or 4 small zucchini, cleaned but not peeled, and shredded
    • Freshly ground pepper
    • 1/4 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
    • 1/4 cup chopped fresh mint
    • 1 cup fresh whole-milk ricotta cheese, at room temperature
