Spaghetti with Roasted Zucchini Recipe-
It's hard to trump tasty strands of spaghetti, but this zucchini topping just might. Tossed with garlicky homemade bread crumbs, crushed red pepper, oil and salt, and baked until golden brown, it's utterly delectable.

Recipe Ingredients
12 oz spaghetti
3 Tbsp olive oil
2 1/2-in.-thick slices fresh bread, torn into 1-in. pieces
2 cloves garlic, smashed
4 small zucchini (about 1 lb total), sliced 1/4 in. thick
1/4 to 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper
Kosher salt
1/4 cup grated Parmesan (1 oz)
1/4 cup flat-leaf parsley, chopped
1 Tbsp grated lemon zest


Recipe Preparation
1. Heat oven to 425°F. Cook the pasta according to package directions. Drain the pasta and return it to the pot. Toss the pasta with 1 Tbsp of the oil.

2. Meanwhile, in a food processor, pulse the bread and garlic until the bread forms coarse crumbs and the garlic is chopped.

3. In a large bowl, toss the zucchini, red pepper, remaining 2 Tbsp oil and 1/2 tsp salt. Add the Parmesan and bread crumb mixture and toss to combine. Spread the zucchini mixture on 2 rimmed baking sheets and roast until the zucchini is tender and golden brown, 10 to 12 minutes.

4. Toss the pasta with the zucchini mixture, parsley and lemon zest. less
