Lemon-Pepper Linguine with Squash
Bring a large pot of water to a boil over high heat. Add spaghetti and cook for 2 minutes less than the package directions. Reserve 3/4 cup of the cooking water, then drain. Return the pasta to the pot.Advertisement
Meanwhile, heat oil and butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add pepper and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add zucchini, squash and salt. Cook, gently stirring occasionally, until just softened, 3 to 4 minutes.
Transfer the zucchini and squash to the pot with the pasta. Add the reserved pasta water, herbs, cheese, lemon zest and juice. Stir gently to combine. Serve with more cheese, if desired.
