How to Make It

Step 1

Cook the pasta according to the package directions. Drain and reserve.

Step 2

Meanwhile, cook the garlic, onion, carrot, salt, and black pepper in the olive oil in a large pot over medium until just 
tender, about 10 minutes. Add the bell pepper, zucchini, 
and grape tomatoes and cook until the vegetables are just tender, 5 minutes more. Add the broth. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to a simmer and cook for 10 minutes.

Step 3

Stir in the pasta to warm and serve, garnished with shaved Parmesan and chopped parsley.
