1) Bring a large pot filled with water up to a boil. Salt generously and add your pasta. Cook according to package instructions.
2) In a large non stick pan sauté the garlic in the oil over high heat, add the zucchini season with salt and pepper and cook for about 8 minutes or so or until the zucchini starts to turn a golden brown color.
3) Before you drain the pasta, reserve 1 cup of the cooking water and set aside.
4) Add the cherry tomatoes at this point and cook for 1 more minute. Add the cooked and drained pasta along with about ¼ to ½ cup of the cooking water.
