  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil and add salt.  Add your pasta to the water and occasionally give it a stir so it doesn’t stick together.
  • While the pasta is cooking, heat a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat and add the olive oil.
  • Add the anchovies to the pan and cook, stirring, until the anchovies melt into the oil.Add the zucchini and cook until golden brown, about 2 minutes and season with red pepper flakes.
  • Drain the pasta, reserving 1/2 cup of the pasta water.
  • Add to the cooked pasta and some of the pasta water to the pan, and season with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Finish cooking the pasta for an additional 1 to 2 minutes.
  • Remove from heat. Add the grated Parmesan, tomatoes and mint and give it a taste, adding additional seasoning if necessary.
  • Serve the pasta on a large platter or individual plates and drizzle the top with a good amount of olive oil.
