Pasta with zucchini, tomatoes, and fresh herbs

It's time for summer pasta, with freshly cooked veggies and lots of fresh herbs.
Start by sautéing an onion (or some scallions, which is what I used this time) for about 5 minutes. Also start your pasta water on a burner to boil.
Add sliced zucchini and summer squash. Cook for 5 minutes or so.
Then add chopped tomatoes. Your pasta water is probably boiling now. Add the pasta and set your timer. Mine needed 11 minutes, which was long enough to finish cooking the veggies.
While the veggies and pasta are cooking, chop your herbs.  I used a mix of basil, oregano, and parsley.
Then add the chopped herbs to the tomatoes and zucchini.
When the pasta is done, cook it for a minute in the zucchini and tomatoes.
Then serve.
With cheese, of course.
