In need of a new pasta meal to round out next week's menu

For ease of menu planning, I rotate my menu so that I have one of each of these: turkey, fish, beef, pork, pizza, chicken, and pasta.

I need a new pasta dish for next week's menu.

I prefer that it be vegetarian, because of course we have plenty of meat in the menu for the week anyway.

I would like it to have zucchini, because I have one sitting in the fridge that needs to be used. I have mushrooms to use too.

I need it to be thrifty-therefore no funky or "one off" type of ingredients that are out of season or expensively imported or aren't likely to be used again.

I also need it to be pretty easy to prep-newborn in the house, plus 3 other kids and DH will be at work all day.

DH and DD1 are both trying to drop some weight so something that's good for that is good too.

Ideas?
