Grilled Vegetables in a Cherry Tomato Sauce


This is a wonderful pasta dish with sweet cherry tomatoes and grilled vegetables making it perfect for this time of year using seasonal squash, and zucchini. I was so lucky my kind neighbor just gave me some from her garden :-)

Ingredients:

  • 4 cloves of chopped garlic 
  • 1/2 a red onion chopped
  • about 15 chopped cherry tomatoes
  • one small zucchini sliced
  • one small yellow squash sliced 
  • 1/4 cup fresh chopped basil 
  • a teaspoon of Italian herbs
  • salt and pepper to taste 
  • 8 sliced mushrooms 
  • a handful of frozen peas 
  • penne pasta 
Method:

  1. grill the squash, zucchini, mushrooms with a little salt and pepper and a little olive oil, I use an electric grill, but an outside one would be wonderful, keep to one side
  2. meanwhile, saute onion and garlic in olive oil for 5 minutes
  3. add the cherry tomatoes, fresh chopped basil and herbs and simmer for 20 minutes on low to make a lovely sauce 
  4. add grilled vegetables and serve with al dente pasta of choice 

What is your favorite vegetable this time of year?
