Instructions

1. Bring large pot of salted water to boil and cook the noodles in two batches until al dente. The first batch can be transferred to a plate brushed with some olive oil to prevent sticking. Reserve 1 cup of pasta cooking water.

2. Meanwhile, preheat a large pan over medium heat. Trim ends off zucchini, slice lengthwise, then crosswise to make half-moon shapes. Add zucchini and 1 tsp olive oil to pan. Cook 3 to 5 min, flipping halfway, until just tender. Transfer zucchini to a plate. 

3. Thinly slice sun-dried tomatoes and finely chop the shallot and garlic.

4. Add shallot and garlic to the pan used for the zucchini, with remaining tsp olive oil. Cook for 2 min, then add the salt, pepper, and vegetable broth.

5. Bring to simmer then gently whisk in Treeline Herb Garlic French-Style cheese until smooth.

6. Add baby spinach, sun-dried tomatoes, parsley, thyme, and sage. Cook 1 min, stirring gently.

7. Add cooked pasta, stir, and add ½ to 1 cup of the pasta cooking water as desired, to thin the sauce. 

8. Serve and top with red chili flakes if desired.
