Makes: 4  to 6  servings Prep 20 mins Start to Finish 35 mins


  • 1 12 ounce package dried gemelli or fusilli pasta
  • 5 tablespoons  extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons  unsalted butter
  • 1 small red onion, sliced
  • 1/2 tablespoon  chopped fresh oregano
  • 1 pound medium zucchini, trimmed, halved crosswise, and shredded lengthwise

Add onion and oregano, season with salt and pepper, and cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Add zucchini and squash; cook, stirring frequently, until wilted, about 5 minutes. Add broth; bring to a simmer. Remove from heat and keep warm, covered, for sauce.

3. Add pasta and 1/2 cup reserved cooking liquid to sauce in skillet; toss to combine. Season with salt and pepper. Simmer until pasta is coated well, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat and toss in feta. Spoon into bowls, drizzle with remaining 2 tablespoons oil and serve. Makes 4 to 6 servings.
