Servings 4 -6
- 2 medium zucchini , sliced into rounds 1/4 inch thick
- 2-3 sweet onions , sliced crosswise, 1/4 inch thick
- 3 garlic cloves , minced
- 1/4 cup basil , chopped

Place zucchini, onions, garlic, chopped basil, olive oil, salt and pepper in a large bowl.
Toss to coat vegetables with herbs and oil. Place veggies on your grill or grill pan and grill about 3-5 minutes per side or until each side is nicely browned and the vegetables are tender.
As the vegetables come off the grill, add them to a large serving bowl. While they are cooking, place butter in a small saucepan.
Cook over medium high heat until butter becomes fragrant and turns a caramel-brown colour.
Remove from heat.
Cook pasta until al dente (tender-firm).
Add pasta to the veggies in your serving bowl.
Add butter and lemon juice to bowl. Toss to evenly coat. Season with salt, freshly ground black pepper and some grated Parmiggiano cheese.
