3. Cook 10 minutes or until the zucchini is soft.

Getting away from tomato sauce and meat sauce for pasta is a good idea once in a while. It reminds us that there are a lot of so called "gravies" that are considered in Italian cooking to be desirable spooned over a variety of pastas. Simple vegetable, olive oil, and garlic sauces are very popular in the Italian countryside, because that's what's available. Experiment a little with different varieties of pasta sauces and surprise your family with some new "spaghetti" meals.
