  • Cook Time: 20
  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: 4 cups 1x
  • Category: Salad
  • Cuisine: Italian


  • 2 cups of pasta (I used penne, but feel free to use your favorite)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 zucchini, sliced
  • 1 yellow squash, sliced
  • 1 bell pepper, sliced
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil, chopped
  • 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1.          Pasta First: I kicked things off by cooking the pasta according to the instructions on the packet.

2.       Sauté Time: While the pasta was cooking, I heated the olive oil in a large sauté pan over medium heat. I tossed in the zucchini, yellow squash, and bell pepper slices, cooking until they started to soften.

3.       More Goodness: Next, I added the cherry tomatoes and the minced garlic to the pan, letting everything cook until the tomatoes began to burst. The aroma was just incredible!

4.       Bring It Together: Once my pasta was perfectly al dente and drained, I added it to the pan of beautifully sautéed veggies.

5.       Toss It Up: Then came the fun part – tossing everything together! I sprinkled in the fresh basil and parmesan cheese and gave everything a good mix. The basil’s freshness paired beautifully with the savory parmesan.

6.       Season and Serve: Finally, I seasoned my creation with salt and pepper, gave it one final stir, and there it was, my perfect Summer Vegetable Pasta, ready to be devoured!


Grilling the vegetables on a grill adds an extra summer flavor, especially if you use wood chips.
