This is a very attractive dish to serve. When you are serving it spoon out a bit from each vegetable section for each serving. Sprinkle with cheese at the table. Serve with a fresh crisp green salad and hot crusty rolls. This is a great do ahead dish assemble it and then just put it in the oven 45 minutes before serving. I like spicy so I add hot peppers and hot sauce but I have tamed it down in case you do not like hot

Delicious pasta dish with an interesting blend of flavors. The corn was a nice, and to us unusual, addition to the red pepper and zucchini. I did add several drops of tabasco to spice it up. I cooked 12 oz. of pasta, but only used about 2/3 of it, and this recipe filled a 13X9 pan. It took me over the stated 15 minutes preparation time, but it was worth the time.....very, very, good.
