Simple Pasta

We have started taking German lessons on Tuesday nights, so Tuesday is now pasta night as it is a very quick thing to make and doesn't have a lot of clean-up.  Both are important to me since as soon as our teacher leaves, we are trying to get the kids to bed...and with my luck, doing the dishes would wake them up :p  I would get tired of the same pasta every week though, and there are many to choose from, so here is one.
What you need:
Tricolor Pasta (you know, for those extra veggies!)
A jar of the new Barilla pasta sauce Coop carries - I chose the Kirshtomaten (cherry tomato) mit Karotten (with carrots)
A loaf of Baguette mit Knoblauchbutter - Garlic Bread - this one is cheaper than the frozen one and I think it tastes better.
1 Zucchini
1 can of mushrooms ( I prefer fresh, but didn't have any on hand)
Parmesan cheese.

Boil some water and add the pasta - it only takes about 3 minutes to cook.
While the water is coming to a boil, add some olive oil to a pan and let it heat.  Slice a zucchini thinly and add some mushrooms, saute.
Also bake the garlic bread.

When the zucchini and mushrooms are done, add the jar of sauce. Add the pasta when it is to your liking and cook for 1-2 minutes, or until everything is well mixed. Top with the cheese and serve with the garlic bread.
