Eggplant and Zucchini Pasta with Feta and Dill
This simple yet hearty weeknight pasta is packed with two whole pounds of vegetables.  Meaty eggplant makes this vegetarian meal satisfying, while zucchini adds texture and a touch of natural sweetness.  Since eggplant tends to absorb oil like a sponge, the key here is to sauté it slowly in a nonstick skillet until it softens and caramelizes without adding too much oil. The feta does double duty, adding bright tang to the dish and creating a creamy sauce.  Fragrant dill is a natural pairing for eggplant and zucchini, but fresh parsley or basil would also be great.

Grilled Zucchini
Naturally suited to grilling, zucchini is both juicy and mild, which means it stays moist even when it’s hit with fire, and it soaks up the smoky flavors of the grill in the short time it cooks. Maximize surface area — and convenience — by cutting the zucchini into sturdy planks, which cook through quickly without slipping through the grates while still retaining some texture. Brush them with olive oil, season enthusiastically with salt and pepper and grill until crisp-tender.

One-Pot Zucchini-Basil Pasta
This no-colander-necessary, one-pot pasta method isn’t a gimmick: Cooking the noodles in just enough seasoned stock means they’re done in the same amount of time it takes the liquid to reduce into a concentrated, extra flavorful sauce.
