Summer vegetable penne

An easy-going pasta recipe that’s full of veg too. To stretch the ingredients further, make another batch of the vegetable mix, cool, and fold through a can of drained Essential Lentils, then mix with bulgar, couscous, or rice. Pack into lunchboxes and scatter with the basil and cheese. Add a little harissa for kick.
