  1. Start off by prepping produce: slice up zucchini, squash and onion.
  2. In a large bowl, combine zucchini, squash, onion and tomatoes. Drizzle a bit of olive oil over top and toss to coat. Then season with salt and pepper, as desired.
  3. Grill vegetables, or use oven's broiler to broil until veggies are lightly charred and tender.
  4. Remove veggies from grill/oven and allow to slightly cool.
  5. While vegetables cook and cool: cook pasta according to package instructions, and make vinaigrette.
  6. For vinaigrette, place all dressing ingredients into a jar with lid. Cover jar and shake vigorously until fully combined.
  7. Once everything is done, combine pasta and veggies. Pour about 1/3 of the dressing over top of the pasta and gently stir to coat.
  8. Serve immediately with additional dressing on side, or refrigerate until ready to eat.
