BEST Summer Harvest Pasta 🍝

This summer harvest pasta is full of garden veggies and flavor!

If you have a garden at home then you probably have an abundance of fresh produce right now! I have lots of zucchini and tomatoes so I made this amazing pasta with sauteed zucchini and sun dried tomatoes. The base of this dish is basically cacio e pepe with some veggies thrown in. It’s full of flavor and one of my favorite dishes!


  • 1 cup of pasta per person
  • 1 large zucchini, chopped
  • 1 cup sun dried tomatoes (try this homemade sun dried tomato recipe)
  • 1 cup grated Parmigiano-Reggiano or Pecorino Romano
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ground black pepper
  • Kosher salt to taste
  • Olive oil as needed


  1. Cook pasta in a pot of salted boiling water until al dente. Drain and reserve a cup of the pasta water. 
  2. While pasta is cooking, saute zucchini in olive oil with salt until tender and browned. 
  3. Add Parmigiano or Pecorino, black pepper and a splash of the hot pasta water into a pan over no flame and mix vigorously with a whisk or wooden spoon until it is saucy. Add pasta, zucchini and sun dried tomatoes, toss or mix with a wooden spoon. Salt to taste and serve.
