Sweet peppers, zucchini and peas get tossed in an herby pesto with fresh penne rigate and garlicky herb-marinated feta.

Mise en place
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Halve and core the sweet peppers lengthwise; thinly slice crosswise into strips. Halve the summer squash lengthwise; thinly slice crosswise into half-moons. Mince the garlic. Pick the basil leaves off the stems; roughly chop the stems, keeping the leaves and stems separate.

Boil the pasta
Add the pasta to the pot of boiling water; stir gently to separate. Boil, 3 to 6 minutes, until al dente (still slightly firm to the bite). Reserving 1 cup cooking water, drain the pasta thoroughly. Toss with a drizzle of oil to prevent sticking.

Sauté the vegetables
While the pasta boils, in a large, high-sided pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high. Add the summer squash, sweet peppers and peas. Sauté, stirring occasionally, 3 to 4 minutes, until beginning to brown; season with S&P to taste. Add the basil stems and ¾ of the garlic; sauté, stirring frequently, 30 seconds to 1 minute, until fragrant.

Marinate the feta
While the vegetables cook, in a small bowl, combine the feta, ½ the white balsamic vinegar, as much remaining garlic as you’d like and a generous drizzle of olive oil; season with ½ the spice blend.

Combine the pasta & serve
Roughly chop the basil leaves. To the pan of vegetables, add the cooked pasta, pesto, remaining white balsamic vinegar, reserved cooking water and 2 tbsp butter; season with the remaining spice blend and S&P to taste. Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, until warmed through and combined. Stir in ½ the basil leaves. Divide the finished pasta between your plates. Garnish with the marinated feta and remaining basil leaves. Bon appétit!
