Delicious, easy, and full of flavor, this light summer pasta recipe made with Grilled Zucchini and Tomato is the perfect meal idea for a hot summer’s day. Grilling the veggies gives them such a nice taste and adds a real summer BBQ feel to the dish. It would make a great Weight Watchers pasta recipe to take to a Potluck too.

I plan on serving this as one of my 4th of July Weight Watchers Recipes at my BBQ this Wednesday, since a few of my friends, who are also Weight Watchers, will be there too. But this Grilled Zucchini and Tomato Parmesan Pasta Recipe is so good, no one else will be aware that they are eating lighter pasta.

  1. Will it taste the same if oven bake the tomatoes and zucchini or cook in the skillet?

    • The oven bake will give them more of a roasted flavor. But either way, it will be delicious!

  2. Made this tonight and it is delicious! I got distracted while reading and ended up grilling the onions, but no matter…we loved this dish! It will be regular this summer…thanks!
