3 ripe tomatoes

1. Whisk Dressing ingredients in a large bowl. Stir in tomatoes and let stand at least 20 minutes to extract juices.

2. Meanwhile heat barbecue grill, ridged cast-iron grill pan or broiler.

3. Spray vegetables with cooking spray. Grill or broil, turning as needed, until slightly charred and tender: peppers 16 to 18 minutes; squashes 13 to 15 minutes; onions 10 to 12 minutes. Remove to a cutting board.

4. Cut peppers in 1/2-inch-wide strips, squashes in bite-size chunks and separate onion slices into rings (cut large rings in half). Add to bowl along with pasta. Toss to mix and coat. Serve at room temperature.
