Cook the penne pasta according to package directions.
While pasta is cooking, saute onion in the olive oil until it starts to soften, about five minutes. Add zucchini and saute for another five minutes. Add garlic, stirring quickly for 30 seconds.Crumble ground lamb into the vegetables, stirring between additions until all of the lamb has been added and has been cooked. Add chicken broth and tomatoes and heat through.
Drain pasta. Combine with meat and vegetable mixture. Stir in parmesan and basil. Season to taste. Serve!
When I serve this to guests in a fancy serving bowl, I warm the bowl in the oven and just mix the pasta, sauce, cheese and basil in it. If it's just for the family, then I mix it back in the pasta cooking pot.
