Ingredients

2 cups uncooked macaroni
2 large zucchini, quartered length-wise and thinly sliced
1 tbsp plus 1 tsp olive oil
1 tsp minced garlic
1 tsp white wine vinegar
1/2 cup chopped basil
1/4 tsp pepper


Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Cook macaroni per package directions until al dente. Drain and spread on a rimmed baking sheet to cool.


Over medium-high heat, saute garlic in 1 tbsp olive oil to 2-3 minutes. Add zucchini and toss, sauteing 4-6 minutes or until zucchini is crisp-tender. Remove from heat.


Combine macaroni, zucchini, and basil in a large serving dish. Toss well with additional 1 tsp olive oil, vinegar, and pepper. Serve at room temperature.

Notes

This is one of those recipes I tried to follow, but things didn't go as planned. I changed it quite a bit and the end result was great! The seasoning is quite mild, so it could be altered easily to suit different tastes.
