Asparagus & zucchini pasta

Someone left fresh zucchini in my office break room! I assume that they come from a garden, which is awesome and very inspiring (as opposed to terrorists that have chosen to attack unsuspecting, break-room browsing office workers).

My roommates and I recently established a garden in the back of our apartment. We’re lucky enough to have a large yard with which to work with, but it’s pretty wild. After a couple of (beer-fueled) work parties, we established some rows, planted some fava beans (to rework the soil says my gardening expert friend), transplanted some herbs and just this weekend added tomatoes, peppers and strawberries.

I am cautiously optimistic. I have personally killed probably 5 or 6 basil plants in the last three years, and the fact that people tell me basil is a tough plant doesn’t make me feel any better. But our garden looks great right now – check it out!

I aspire to one day having such a bounty in the garden that I can share with all my nearest and dearest (or, you know, people at the office). This recipe is based around that totally inspiring zucchini.
