Ingredients List

Serve up this Mediterranean pasta that features garden zucchini with fire-roasted and sun-dried tomatoes. The olives and asiago cheese lend depth in flavor and richness. Add cooked chicken or shrimp for a heartier dish.

Instruction

  1. Cook pasta according to package directions; drain. Keep warm.
  2. Meanwhile, sauté onion in 2 tablespoons olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat until crisp-tender. Add garlic; cook and stir 1 minute longer. Stir in the zucchini, fire-roasted and sun-dried tomatoes, olives, capers, thyme, red pepper flakes and remaining olive oil. Cook and stir for 2-3 minutes or until heated through. Add pasta; toss to coat. Reduce heat to low. Sprinkle with 3/4 cup asiago; gently toss to combine. Remove from the heat. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Sprinkle with remaining asiago. 

Recipe Tip

  • Any brand of Wisconsin asiago cheese can be used.

Cheesemonger Tip

Asiago derives its name from a small town in northern Italy. In Wisconsin, cheesemakers age asiago to develop sharper flavors that resemble a cross between aged cheddar and parmesan.
