Heat oil in a wide frying pan over high heat.
Add zucchini and garlic; cook, stirring, just until zucchini is tender-crisp to bite (3 to 4 minutes).
Reduce heat to low.
While zucchini is cooking, in a 5- to 6-quart pan, cook linguine in 3 quarts boiling water just until tender to bite (1 to 2 minutes for fresh pasta, 8 to 10 minutes for dry); or cook according to package directions.
Drain well and set aside.
To zucchini mixture, add parsley, butter, and half-and-half; stir lightly until butter is melted.
Add pasta, Parmesan cheese, and jack cheese.
Mix lightly, using 2 forks.
Season to taste with salt and pepper.
