  • In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook the linguine until al dente; drain well. Add the linguine to the bowl along with the sliced zucchini and toss. Add the 1/4 cup of grated cheese, toss again and serve in bowls, passing more cheese at the table.

Suggested Pairing

Cooked tomato sauces are a great match with high-acid red grapes like Barbera and Sangiovese, but a raw tomato sauce such as this one calls for something more delicate, like a dry rosé.
