Pasta with Tomatoes Zucchini and Pesto

Share

This Pasta with Tomatoes, Zucchini, and Pesto is one of my go-to quick meals. I love the punchy flavor the pesto brings to the dish. In this recipe I use bocconcini which are small mozzarella cheese balls. If you can’t find bocconcini, you can substitute with a normal mozzarella ball, torn into bite sized chunks. 

To make this pasta dish, I start by cooking up some fettuccine and corn. Then I mix up tomatoes with pesto, zucchini and bocconcini cheese. I mix these together with the cooked pasta and sprinkle fresh basil on top for a pasta dish which is fresh and full of Italian flavor.

To make my Pasta with Tomatoes, Zucchini, and Pesto, you will need the following ingredients:
