Pasta with Zucchini

Here is a simple ,healthy pasta dish,loaded with flavor. I have used fusilli,but any type of pasta is fine.Use whatever you have in your pantry.

3 cloves of garlic,minced
1/4 c. green onion,chopped
2 medium zucchini,sliced
1 lb. pasta of your choice
1/2 c.grated  parmigiano reggiano
3 tbsp. olive oil
salt & pepper to taste
   Bring a stockpot filled with water to a boil.Add your pasta,and cook until it is al dente(slightly firm,not soft.Drain,and set aside for a few minutes.
   In a saute pan,pour 3 tbsp. of olive oil.Add the zucchini and green onion.Season with salt & pepper.Saute until the zucchini is tender.Add the garlic and saute about 1-2 minutes more.Be careful not to burn the garlic.Add the pasta and the parmesan.Toss together .Serve warm,with additional paremesan if desired.
