1. Set oven to 220ÂșC.
Bing a saucepan of water to the boil. Add pasta and cook according to packet instructions (see notes).

3. Heat a large frypan with oil over medium heat.
Slice and add onion. Cook for 5 minutes or until soft, crush in garlic.

4. In the meantime, slice zucchini (see notes). Add to pan along with mushrooms and 1 1/2 tsp oregano. Cook for further 3-4 minutes.

5. Stir in 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar then toss in cooked pasta, roasted tomatoes and prosciutto. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Boil water in the kettle to make it quicker cooking the pasta.
