Whole Wheat Spaghetti with Yogurt Cream Sauce

 ½ lb Colavita Whole Wheat Spaghetti
 1 ½ cups plain low-fat yogurt
 2 tbsp Colavita Extra Virgin Olive Oil, divided
 4 garlic cloves, minced
 1 Colavita Hot Chili Pepper, minced
 2 medium zucchinis, spiralized or cut into strips with a potato peeler
 Finely grated zest of 2 lemons, plus 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
 Salt and freshly ground pepper
 ¼ cup freshly grated parmigiano reggiano cheese
 2 tbsp fresh parsley, minced

Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Salt it generously and add the pasta. Cook the spaghetti according to the package instructions.


Add the zucchini noodles during the last two minutes of cooking.


Drain the pasta and zucchini, reserving 1 cup of the pasta water.


Drizzle the pasta and vegetables with 1 tbsp of Colavita olive oil to prevent sticking.


In a large skillet, heat the remaining tablespoon of Colavita olive oil. Add the garlic and chili and cook over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, until fragrant, about 2 minutes.


Add the yogurt and ΒΌ cup of the reserved pasta water and bring to a simmer, stirring.


Stir in the lemon zest and juice and season with salt and pepper.


Add the spaghetti and zucchini to the sauce in the pan and toss well to coat.


Sprinkle with the Parmigiano Reggiano cheese and fresh parsley.
