Tossed Angel Hair Pasta

1 pound angel hair pasta
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 lemon, zested
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
Parmesan, for garnish

Cook the angel hair according to the package instructions. When the pasta is nearly done, heat the olive oil in a large saute pan over medium heat and add the lemon zest, salt, and pepper and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Drain the pasta, reserving 1/4 cup cooking water, if needed. Remove the infused oil from the heat, add the pasta, and toss to coat, adding pasta cooking water, if needed. Grate just a hint of Parmesan on the pasta before serving.
