A pasta for all seasons!

Zucchini Pasta
This pasta recipe has been passed around so many times but it's great no matter the season and right now, I'm tired of the standard winter fare and am looking for inspiration to feel like summer will come again.

1 lb. dried bowtie pasta
4 med zucchini – shredded
4 Tbls. butter
1 c. plain Greek yogurt
1 c. parmesan cheese – grated or shredded
Dash of nutmeg
Salt/pepper to taste

Cook pasta according to directions and add zucchini to pasta water at last 1-2 minutes of pasta cooking time. Drain pasta/zucchini reserving ¼ c. pasta water. In large saucepan, melt butter and add yogurt, cheese, nutmeg, reserved pasta water and salt/pepper to gently warm. Toss sauce with pasta and enjoy!
