Any sort of recipe with loads of veggies in it is sure to make my meal plan. I was initially intrigued by the grilled veggie part of the recipe because I recently acquired a cast iron grill pan. I decided to cut my zucchini in spears and grill it in the cast iron. Not only was I able to get these gorgeous grill marks on each piece and side, but the zucchini itself is absolutely addictive. I had a few extra zucchini that I grilled up and ate for a snack the next day. Just A+ in my opinion. You can grill and roast as many of the veggies as you'd like, but in the end, the simple flavors work so well together in this summer pasta dish!
