In a medium pot of boiling salted water, cook pasta according to package instructions. Reserve 1 cup pasta water, then drain and return to pot.

Heat a grill or grill pan to medium-high; clean and lightly oil hot grill. Working in batches if necessary, lightly brush vegetables with 2 tablespoons oil, season with salt and pepper, and grill, turning occasionally, until browned and tender. Transfer vegetables to a cutting board and let cool slightly.

Roughly chop vegetables, then add to pasta, along with 2 tablespoons oil and vinegar to taste. If necessary, add pasta water to create a light sauce that coats pasta. Season with salt and pepper, sprinkle with basil , parmesan cheese and serve.
