Pasta with zucchini and Ricotta Salata

Pasta is my go-to dish for a quick supper. This is a standard combination of my favorite flavors. I always start with onion and garlic sauteed with in olive oil. Here I've added sliced zucchini, fresh basil, chopped fresh tomatoes and small white beans and crumbled Ricotta Salata cheese - a dry salted ricotta cheese made from sheep's milk - which is sort the Italian version of Feta Cheese, a similar texture - drier, and less salty. You may have noticed that I never tire of eating pasta with vegetables and feta, I am becoming very fond of Ricotta Salata as well.
