Pasta with Zucchini and Toasted Almonds

Not only does fresh pasta from the refrigerated section cook faster than dried, it also tastes better―the chewy texture of the pasta is an incomparable improvement. Here the pasta is mixed with an abundance of zucchini, mint, and marinated tomatoes, with a sprinkle of almonds for extra crunch. Add a side salad for a filling vegetarian meal, or add cooked shrimp or chicken to the pasta to create a one-dish dinner.
