Here's an easy recipe and frugal....
frugal doesn't necessarily mean cheap.... *s*

1 lb of spaghetti...
2 zucchini, sliced in pennies
4 cloves garlic, peeled and smashed
1/2 cup olive oil or corn oil
parmesan cheese
hot pepper flakes (optional)

In a frypan, put oil and garlic and zucchini.
Fry them to desired doneness and remove them from
a pan with a slotted spoon.

Cook spaghetti al dente, drain and add to frying pan, toss the spaghetti in the hot oil ( add the pepper flakes if desired).. add the zucchini... toss well...and serve with grated cheese.

VARIATIONS:
You may, if you like after the zucchini is half cooked, add one 8 oz can of Hunt's tomato sauce and let simmer for 15 min, covered. Stir occasionally.

You can also add sauteed mushrooms and onions to the zucchini, with or without the tomato ......
