Summer Pasta with Zucchini, Tomatoes, and Fresh Herbs

This healthy, easy, fresh dish shows off the simplicity of good quality fresh ingredients that are the stars of Italian cooking. It's a great way to use all the good summer produce available, and there's no cooking required apart from the pasta! 


1 large zucchini or 2 small zucchinis diced
1 pound of ripe tomatoes, diced
1 cup of Arugula
1 teaspoon parsley, chopped
A handful of fresh basil, thinly sliced 
6 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil 
1/2 cup Shredded Parmesan 
1 pound bow tie pasta 
Freshly ground salt and pepper

In a large pot of salted boiling water cook pasta until al dente, about 11 minutes. 
Meanwhile gently toss all other ingredients in a large bowl. 
Toss hot drained pasta directly in, taste for seasonings and serve immediately with extra Parmesan for the table. Buon appetito!
