Cook noodles

Before starting, add 10 cups water and 2 tsp salt to a large pot. Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Wash and dry all produce. Add spaghetti to the boiling water. Cook uncovered, stirring occasionally, until tender, 10-12 min. Reserve 1/4 cup pasta water, then drain and return noodles to the same pot, off heat.

Prep ingredients

Meanwhile, drain, then slice olives into 1/4-inch rounds. Finely grate zucchini. Drain, then pat bocconcini dry with paper towels.

Make sauce and toss noodles

Heat a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat. When hot, add 2 tsp butter, then zucchini. Cook, stirring occasionally, until zucchini is tender and has released some of its liquid, 3-4 min. Add pesto and reserved pasta water. Season with salt and pepper, then stir until combined and sauce is warmed through. Add sauce to the pot with noodles (from step 1), then toss to combine.

Assemble and serve

Divide noodles between plates. Create ‘eyes’ for your monsters by arranging 2 bocconcini side by side on each plate of noodles. Finish the ‘eyes’ by placing 1 olive slice in the middle of each bocconcini, pressing down to adhere. Sprinkle remaining olives over pasta, if desired.
