Tortellini with Summer Vegetables

Looking for something fresh, tasty, and super simple for dinner? Have I got the recipe for you! I made this for dinner tonight. It tasted like I'd been in the kitchen for hours, but I had it on the table in less than 30 minutes. And it didn't heat up the house!
* 1 package frozen cheese tortellini
* 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, chopped
* 1 zucchini, sliced, then halved
* 1 roma tomato, cut into chunks
* 1 clove garlic
* 1 teaspoon chopped onion
* 1 tablespoon chopped green pepper
* olive oil
* salt and pepper, to taste
* parmesan cheese

Put water on to boil. Meanwhile, cook chicken in oil with whole garlic clove and lots of pepper. Cook tortellini according to package directions. When chicken is nearly done, add zucchini, onion and green pepper. Cook until zucchini is tender; add tomatoes just to heat through. Remove garlic clove and discard. Combine drained pasta and vegetables. Add salt and pepper to taste and more olive oil if needed. Top with parmesan cheese and serve.
