Preparation steps

1.
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and cook the pasta until al dente, about 8 to 9 minutes. Drain.

Add the zucchini, peppers, and onion; stir-fry for 2 to 3 minutes, or until slightly softened. Reduce heat and add tomatoes, honey, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Simmer for about 2 minutes.

Toss vegetables with cooked pasta; cool. Sprinkle with basil leaves and Parmesan cheese. Serve cold, warm or at room temperature.
