Zucchini Pepper Basil Pasta Toss

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by vrvrvr

Feel free to use this as a base and jump off at will with veggies and herbs. This is good for a little bit of zucchini, a little bit of fresh red pepper, a little leftover pasta in the bottom of the boxes...you get the idea. Great with grilled chicken.

This was easy and delicious!!! I added some smoked sausage I had left over in the fridge and some banana peppers to add a bit of heat!!! Thanks:)
