Step 1

1. To a large pot of boiling water set over high heat, add the spaghetti and ½ teaspoon of the salt and cook, following the package instructions, until al dente. Drain the pasta in a colander. Transfer the cooked pasta to a medium bowl and drizzle with 1 teaspoon of the olive oil.

2. In the same pot, heat the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil and 1 tablespoon of grapeseed oil over medium heat. Add the zucchini and cook, stirring occasionally, until it softens, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic, sage and rosemary and stir to combine. Continue to cook until the garlic is fragrant, about 2 minutes.

3. To the zucchini mixture, add the pasta. Stir to combine and cook until the pasta is heated through. Turn off the heat and stir in the Parmigiano-Reggiano (if using), the feta, lemon zest, black pepper and the remaining 1 teaspoon of salt. Sprinkle with additional Parmigiano-Reggiano (if using) and serve hot. Calories per Serving: 490; Sodium: 1,530mg; Total Carbohydrate: 37g; Fiber: 3g; Fat: 35g
