Instructions

Linguine and Zoodle version

  • Cook pasta according to directions on package.
  • When there is around 5 minutes remaining for the pasta, start cooking the vegetables: heat olive oil in a large pan over medium heat.
  • Add the asparagus and snap peas, and cook for 3 minutes. Add the zucchini noodles and garlic. Cook for 3-4 mintues, mixing frequently with tongs.
  • When zucchini is soft, add the lemon zest, lemon juice and parmesan cheese.
  • Scoop the pasta out of the boiling water (don't drain yet!) and add to the pan with the zucchini. Toss evenly and arrange on plates.
  • Drain all but 2 inches of water from the pasta pot.
  • Crack the eggs into the water and cook for 3 minutes, or until eggs are cooked to your liking. Scoop out of the water and place on top of the pasta.
