Plus Cooking time: 5 minutes
Makes 4 Servings



medium tomato
red, yellow or orange bell peppers
1/3 cup
finely chopped fresh oregano
5 tbsp
lemon juice, about 1 large lemon
1/4 cup
1 tsp
1/2 tsp
medium-sized zucchini
450-g pkg
angel hair or capellini pasta
1 cup
grated parmesan


  • Boil a large pot of water over high. Meanwhile, coarsely chop tomatoes and peppers and place in a very large bowl. Stir in oregano, lemon juice, oil and seasonings. Cut zucchini into quarters lengthwise, then thinly slice and set aside.
  • When water is boiling, add pasta. Cook, stirring occasionally, until al dente, about 5 min. Add zucchini for the last min of cooking. Drain well.
  • Add pasta and zucchini to tomato mixture. Toss to mix evenly. Stir in cheese. Serve sprinkled with more cheese, if you like.
  • Kitchen Tip: Use a 130-g log of goat cheese instead of parmesan for a creamier sauce.
