From Moosewood Cooks At Home, one of my favorite cookbooks, with extra protein added from a vegie chicken product. The original recipe called for pecorino cheese, which I couldn't find. It's a great dish for using zucchini.

Recipe Ingredients for Spaghetti with Zucchini and Lemon

8 ounces Quorn pieces, chicken style
1 tablespoon olive oil
4 garlic cloves, minced
4 cups zucchini, sliced
1/4 cup lemon juice
6 basil leaves, sliced
1 cup parmesan cheese
1 salt
1 pepper
1/2 pound spaghetti

Recipe Directions for Spaghetti with Zucchini and Lemon

  1. Add pasta to a large pot of boiling water, cover and return to a boil, then uncover and cook until al dente.

  2. While the pasta cooks, heat the olive oil in a large heavy skillet. Add the garlic and zucchini, and sauté on medium-high heat until the zucchini begins to brown. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Add the lemon juice and basil, stir, and remove from heat. The zucchini should be done just before the pasta is ready.

  3. Drain the pasta and either toss with the cheese or add cheese individually with the zucchini.
