Cook through (about 6-7 minutes) then add the tomato paste and zucchini. Saute for an additional two mintues and then pour in the diced tomatoes. Bring to a simmer and cook for 10 minutes, adding pasta water if the sauce is too thick.
Serve sauce over cooked spaghetti. Garnish with shredded parmesean if desired.
This is a great make-ahead meat sauce for busy weeknights. Just reheat and serve over fresh pasta.
