instructions
1 Prepare the ingredients

Wash and dry the fresh produce. Fill a medium pot 3/4 of the way up with salted water; cover and heat to boiling on high. Halve the tomatoes. Roughly chop the peppers and olives. Halve the zucchini lengthwise, then thinly slice crosswise. Pick the mint leaves off the stems. In a large bowl, combine the halved tomatoes, chopped peppers and olives, vinegar, and a drizzle of olive oil; season with salt and pepper. Set aside to marinate, stirring occasionally.

2 Cook the pasta

Add the pasta to the pot of boiling water. Cook, uncovered, 7 to 9 minutes, or until tender. Turn off the heat. Drain thoroughly. Transfer to the bowl of marinated tomatoes.

3 Cook the zucchini & serve your dish

In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the sliced zucchini. Cook, without stirring, 2 to 3 minutes, or until lightly browned. Add the oregano; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 1 to 2 minutes, or until the zucchini is softened. Turn off the heat. Transfer to the bowl of cooked pasta and tomatoes. Add half the cheese (crumbling before adding); stir to combine. Serve the finished pasta salad garnished with the remaining cheese (crumbling before adding) and mint leaves (tearing just before adding). Enjoy!
