 1 regular box Whole Wheat fettuccine (I couldn't find fettuccine - Penne works well too!)

3 medium zucchini cut into julienne strips

1/4 c. olive oil

1 tablespoon butter

3 large cloves of garlic, minced

 2 tsp dried basil

1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese (I used 1 cup)

Cook pasta according to directions in large pan. While pasta cooks, combine oil, butter, garlic & basil in small sauce pan. Cover & simmer for 10 minutes. Do not allow garlic to brown. Steam zucchini in small amount of water, over high heat for 3 minutes. Drain pasta and zucchini. Toss zucchini, cheese, oil & salt in with fettuccine. Serves 6*

*We had two adult servings and three child-size servings with enough left over for at least two more adults!
