One Pot Pasta with Zucchini

Serves 6

Not only is this an easy, quick recipe, but it uses the ever abundant zucchini!

  • 1 large baking potato, scrubbed and cut in ½-inch cubes
  • 2 tablespoons salt
  • 2 medium zucchini, cut in ½-inch cubes
  • 1 pound whole wheat penne
  • ½ cup grated Romano
  • ¼ cup chopped arugula
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Red pepper flakes

Bring a large pot of water to the boil over medium-high heat. Add potatoes and salt and cook for 2 minutes. Add zucchini and pasta and cook 9–10 minutes, or until al dente. Drain and reserve ½ cup pasta water.

Place in a warmed bowl and toss with cheese, arugula, olive oil and red pepper flakes.
