I agree, this is a great baseline for a fresh summer pasta! I used 1/3 box of the wheat penne instead of the entire thing.
I also did not want to change up the vegies as I wanted a clean fresh simple pasta, but I did double it. I used Roma tomatoes instead of Sundried.
I also sauted the garlic in olive oil with parsley.. threw in the vegies, then added minced onion, and itialian seasoning.
I put that mixture aside when I felt it was ready, and took my cooked pasta and sauted it on the skillet with some olive oil and garlic powder to get it a little crisp and absorb some flavor so it was not so bland as it is wheat pasta.
Mixed it all together, added crushed red pepper and fresh parmesan shavings and it was delish!
