Before starting, preheat the oven to 450°F.Add 10 cups water and 2 tsp salt to a large pot (use same for 4 ppl). Cover and bring to a boil over high heat.Wash and dry all produce. Add penne to the boiling water. Cook uncovered, stirring occasionally, until tender, 10-12 min. Reserve 3/4 cup (1 1/2 cups) pasta water, then drain and return penne to the same pot, off heat.


Meanwhile, core, then cut pepper into 1/4-inch pieces.Halve zucchini lengthwise, then cut into 1/4-inch half-moons.
