Simple and delicious meal for a summer gathering or a weeknight— make sure there are leftovers because this is a great lunch the next day!

  • ½ lb Pesto Cavatappi pasta (or another short cut pasta—find it at Olive Us!)

Bring a pot of water to a rolling boil and add 1 tsp of salt. Add the pasta and cook for about 10-12 minutes or until al dente. Drain the pasta and add it back to the pot. Stir in pesto, and zucchini (optional). Serve immediately and top with basil and parmesan. Enjoy!
