In a heavy frying pan, heat the oil and add the bread crumbs, lemon zest, salt & pepper.
Cook over medium heat, stirring often until the crumbs are crisp and light brown; set aside.
Cook the pasta in salted boiling water.
While it is cooking, heat the oil in a small, heavy saucepan.
Add the garlic and chili flakes and cook until sizzling but not browned; remove from heat.
Once the pasta is cooked al dente, remove a small cup of pasta water, and drain the pasta.
Return pasta to the pot, and add the garlic, oil, and lemon juice.
Mix well over medium heat until hot, adding a little pasta water if the mixture seems dry.
Add the parsley, mix well and serve with the crispy bread crumbs on top.
