  • 1 medium zucchini, diced

  • 1 red or yellow bell pepper, seeded and diced

  • 1 large onion, thinly sliced

  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided

  • Salt & freshly ground pepper, to taste

  • 2 large tomatoes, chopped

  • ¼ cup chopped fresh basil

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 12 ounces whole-wheat pasta

  • ½ cup crumbled feta cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Put a large pot of lightly salted water on to boil.

  2. Toss zucchini, bell pepper and onion with 1 tablespoon oil in a large roasting pan or a large baking sheet with sides. Season with salt and pepper. Roast the vegetables, stirring every 5 minutes, until tender and browned, 10 to 20 minutes.

  3. Meanwhile, combine tomatoes, basil, garlic and the remaining 1 tablespoon oil in a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper.

  4. Cook pasta until just tender, 8 to 10 minutes. Drain and transfer to the bowl with the tomatoes. Add the roasted vegetables and toss well. Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper. Serve, passing feta cheese separately.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
