  • Summary

    This simple pasta comes together quickly and makes use of what can sometimes be an overwhelming bumper crop of zucchini and other summer squash come August. Browning the squash in two batches is the only semi-fussy request, and it pays off by giving the squash an almost crunchy texture. Lemon and an abundance of fresh herbs provide brightness to this soon-to-be summer staple. Serve it with a tomato and onion salad dressed with plenty of grassy olive oil.

    Ingredients

    • 1 pound fusilli or other short curvy pasta
    • 1 1/2 pounds zucchini or other summer squash, or a combination, halved lengthwise and cut into 1/2- inch thick pieces
    • Kosher salt and black pepper
    • 4 tablespoons olive oil
    • 2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
    • 1/2 teaspoon red-pepper flakes
    • Juice and zest of 1 lemon
    • 1/2 cup grated Pecorino or grated Parmesan cheese, plus more for serving
    • 1 1/2 cups roughly chopped herbs, such as mint, basil, chervil, Italian parsley, plus more for garnish
    • Flaky salt, for serving (optional)
