Roasted Vegetable Pasta

Serves 4
Kosher salt
2 small zucchini, halved lengthwise and sliced ½ inch thick
1 bunch asparagus, trimmed and cut into 2-inch pieces
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
Freshly ground pepper
1 small onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
1 28-ounce can diced tomatoes
½ cup grated pecorino romano or parmesan cheese, plus more for topping
9 ounces fresh linguine
½ cup chopped fresh basil

Preheat the oven to 425˚. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil.

Meanwhile, toss the zucchini and asparagus with 1½ tablespoons olive oil on a rimmed baking sheet; season  with salt and pepper. Roast until tender, about 20 minutes.

Heat the remaining 1½ tablespoons olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion; cook, stirring  occasionally, until softened, about 8 minutes. Add the garlic and cook 30 more seconds. Increase the heat to  medium high, add the tomatoes and simmer, stirring occasionally, 15 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir  in the cheese.

Meanwhile, add the linguine to the boiling water and cook as the label directs. Reserve ½ cup cooking  water, then drain the pasta and add to the skillet with the sauce. Add the roasted vegetables and the reserved cooking water; toss to combine, then stir in the basil. Divide among bowls and top with more  cheese.
