You won't waste a second making this delicious side dish. Cook the pasta while you're sauteing the vegetables, and they'll be done at the same time.—Edith Ruth Muldoon, Baldwin, New York

  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 small zucchini, julienned
  • 2 medium carrots, julienned
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese


  1. Cook pasta according to package directions. Meanwhile, in a skillet, saute onion in oil until tender. Add zucchini and carrots; stir-fry until carrots are tender. Drain pasta; place in a serving bowl. Add vegetables and toss gently. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
