  • 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.
  • Meanwhile, drain, then slice olives into 1/4-inch rounds.
  • Finely grate zucchini.
  • Drain, then pat bocconcini dry with paper towels.
  • 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, then toss to combine.
  • Divide noodles between plates. 
  • Create 'eyes' for your monsters by arranging two bocconcini side by side on each plate of noodles. Finish the 'eyes' by placing one olive slice in the middle of each bocconcini, pressing down to adhere.
  • Sprinkle remaining olives over pasta, if desired.
