Sassy Pesto Pasta and Veggies

A very easy recipe if you have pesto already made! I'm always looking for ways to use zucchini this time of year as the garden always over produces! This made a very large amount of pasta and there still wasn't any left. Everyone took seconds but me... I think you could use many different types of veggies and cheeses in this recipe and it would be just as good. You can also use other pastas such as bow ties or fusilli. I used what was either in the garden or right in the front of the fridge. I used a prebaked acorn squash that I'd planned to use for another recipe and it added a very wonderful nutty flavor to the dish.
