INGREDIENTS

4 cup(s) basil, fresh, loosely packed

1/4 cup(s) cheese, Parmesan, grated for pesto blend, plus 1/2 cup grated for finish

3 clove(s) garlic, quartered

1/2 cup(s) broth, vegetable, reduced-sodium, or chicken broth

1 teaspoon salt, Kosher

1/4 teaspoon pepper, black ground

1 package(s) pasta, penne, 100% whole-wheat

1 tablespoon oil, olive

1 large zucchini, cut into 1-inch wedges (about 2 cups)

1 pint(s) tomato(es), cherry, halved

METHOD

Combine basil leaves, ¼ cup Parmesan cheese, garlic, chicken/vegetable broth, salt, and pepper in a food processor or blender and process to a loose paste.

Set pesto sauce aside.

Bring a large pot of unsalted water to a boil and cook penne according to package directions. Drain and return to pot (cover to keep warm).

While pasta cooks, heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat.

Add the zucchini to the skillet and sauté until just softened, about 4 minutes.

Add tomatoes and continue to cook vegetables for another 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from heat.

Add sautéed vegetables and pesto sauce to pasta and gently toss until all ingredients are evenly coated with sauce. Top each serving with 2 tablespoons

Parmesan cheese, or simply toss remaining ½ cup Parmesan directly into pasta pesto and mix thoroughly before serving.
