Zucchini Ricotta Pasta Skillet

Ingredients:

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 1/2 cups 1/4-inch slices zucchini and/or summer squash
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 2 cups uncooked farfalle pasta (6 oz)
  • 1 3/4 cups chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup whole milk ricotta cheese
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil leaves, plus more for garnish

Directions:

  1. In 10-inch skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add zucchini; cook 3 to 4 minutes, stirring frequently, until zucchini begins to brown. Add garlic; cook and stir 30 seconds. Remove from skillet.
  2. Add pasta and broth to same skillet; heat to boiling. Reduce heat to medium-low; cover and simmer 11 to 13 minutes, stirring occasionally, until pasta is al dente. (There will be a little liquid left in the skillet.)
