Bring lightly salted pasta water to boil and add pasta to water, cooking al dente. Bring a medium skillet to medium heat, add oil or ¼ cup of vegetable broth, add garlic and shallots until tender.

Gently stir in English peas.  Reserve one cup of pasta water then drain pasta, zucchini and carrots together. Gently toss pasta and vegetables into the skillet with English pea mixture. Add salt and pepper to taste, then add red pepper flakes and sprinkle in toasted pine nuts. If sauce seems too dry, add a little pasta water to thin. Top with chopped parsley and serve.
