Roast the chicken & zucchini
Place the oven rack in the top position and preheat the oven to 450°F. Bring a medium pot of salted water to a boil. Quarter the zucchini lengthwise; cut into bite-size pieces. On a lined sheet pan, toss with a drizzle of oil, ½ the spices and S&P. Pat the chicken dry with paper towel; season with the remaining spices and S&P. Add the chicken* to the pan and roast, flipping halfway, 20 to 25 min., until cooked through.

Boil the pasta
Meanwhile, add the pasta to the pot of boiling water; stir gently to separate. Boil, 10 to 12 min., until al dente. Reserving ½ cup cooking water (double for 4 portions), drain and toss with a drizzle of oil to prevent sticking.

Broil the chicken & zucchini
When the chicken and zucchini are cooked through, switch the oven to broil. Sprinkle the chicken with the cheese and broil, 1 to 2 min., until the cheese is melted and golden.

Make the sauce
Roughly chop the roasted pepper. In a large pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high. Sauté the garlic, 30 sec. to 1 min., until fragrant. Add the capers, roasted pepper, tomato sauce and S&P; bring to a boil.

Combine the pasta
To the pan of sauce, add the pasta, zucchini and ½ the reserved cooking water. Cook, stirring often, 2 to 3 min., until combined. If the sauce seems dry, gradually add the remaining cooking water until you achieve your desired consistency.
