Zucchini Garlic Pasta Using Zucchini Flowers

Sitting down with an easy and fast zucchini garlic pasta and my favorite film from 1987…#Mannequin! I totally forgot Estelle Getty is in it, and I remember loving the music (and still do). Yeah, it’s cheesy, but I’m in uber nostalgia mode…and loving it!  A family favorite, zucchini & garlic pasta is a light summer dish. With an already busy week, I didn’t grocery shop and had limited ingredients. I added tuna as a twist, but you could leave it out or substitute with chicken.

This #80sKid gives the movie & pasta two thumbs up! 👍🏼👍🏼

INGREDIENTS
4 cloves garlic, whole

2 tbsp. evoo

8 zucchini flowers, chopped

1 garlic clove, minced

1 tbsp. butter

1 lb. cooked pasta

1/4 tsp. black pepper

Sautè the cloves of garlic in the evoo for a few minutes, add zucchini & continue cooking until tender. Add remaining ingredients and cook on low while pasta cooks. Add pasta, mix, and top with parmesan & hot pepper flakes.
