Linguine with Zucchini and Chick Peas

This meal was so light and refreshing.  It can be served hot or at room temperature so it perfect for a party or a picnic!  I found it on Pinterest, of course, via Real Simple.  I will definitely make this again and again!


12 oz. (3/4 box) linguine
2 T. olive oil
3 small zucchini, cut into half moon slices
1 c. chick peas, drained and rinsed
2 cloves garlic, diced
1/2 c. grated Parmesan cheese


-  Cook pasta according to the directions on the package.  Drain pasta but keep 1/2 cup of the pasta water.
-  Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook zucchini in the olive oil until tender.
-  Add chick peas and garlic and cook until heated through.
-  Toss the pasta with the reserved pasta water and half of the Parmesan cheese.
-  Divide the pasta among your individual serving bowls.
-  Top each with the zucchini mixture and some of the remaining Parmesan cheese.
