isn't my favorite veggie ... unless it's on the grill. Yum!

For this recipe, I paired grilled zucchini, pasta, and Parmesan cheese -- it's super-light for those hot summer days.

Find out how easy it is to make.

Cheesy Pasta With Grilled Zucchini

  • 1 sliced zucchini (slice into long sticks)
  • Olive oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Pasta (your choice of shape)
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  1. Start by tossing zucchini in a little olive oil with salt and pepper to taste. You can also sub red pepper flakes for the plain old pepper. Place on grill and cook 2 minutes on each side. You should get those great char-grilled lines.
  2. Next, in a pot, boil water and add pasta. Cook 11 minutes or until tender. Drain and toss with a few tablespoons of olive oil and Parmesan cheese.
  3. Add zucchini to pasta and serve. So simple!
