  • Large pot

  • Skillet

  • Colander

  • Cutting board

  • Knife


  • 1 pound rigatoni pasta

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1 onion, diced

  • 3 garlic cloves, minced

  • 2 zucchinis, diced

  • 1 red bell pepper, diced

  • 1 can (14.5 oz) diced tomatoes

  • 1 teaspoon dried basil

  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano

  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • Parmesan cheese (optional)


Bring a large pot of salted water to boil. Add the rigatoni pasta and cook according to package instructions until al dente.
While the pasta is cooking, heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and sauté until the onion is translucent and garlic is fragrant.
Add the zucchini and red bell pepper to the skillet and sauté for another 3-4 minutes or until they are slightly softened.
Add the diced tomatoes, dried basil, dried oregano, salt, and pepper to the skillet. Stir everything together and bring it to a simmer.
Drain the pasta in a colander and add it to the skillet with the vegetable sauce. Toss everything together until the pasta is coated with the sauce.
Serve hot with grated Parmesan cheese, if desired.


You can add other vegetables of your choice like mushrooms, broccoli or spinach to make the recipe even more nutritious. To make it vegan, you can skip the Parmesan cheese.
