Warm Zucchini and Pasta Salad

This is really good. I made this for a pot luck dinner at a friends home. I came home with very little of it left!

Warm Zucchini and Pasta Salad
4-5 small to medium zucchini's sliced 1/2 in thick
2 large yellow bell peppers, chopped in large pieces (but keep them bite size)
1/2 red onion, chopped
8oz small shell pasta cooked according to package directions and drained
1 bottle cheesey vinagrette (or italian) salad dressing-pick your favorite
1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1 large roma tomato, sliced

cook the peppers and zucchini in pot with a little bit of olive oil. cook until tender but with a slight crunch, not soggy.

let cool slightly and add pasta and onion.
add dressing (you won't use the whole bottle unless you like it soupy-just use as much as you desire) and let sit until ready to eat. just before serving add cheese and top with tomatoes.

you do not need to refrigerate until after it's been served. this is meant to be warm, but not hot.
