I was feeling creative while I was looking for a use for my garden fresh zucchini and I put this together for a side dish. You could also add ground turkey and make a main course! This contains 7 points on the Weight Watchers Points Plus program.

Ingredients

2 Tbsp
olive oil
2 clove
minced garlic
3 Tbsp
minced red onion
1/2 medium
zucchini - chopped
1 qt
stewed tomatoes - drained (reserve juice)
1
juice from 1 lemon

multi grain angel hair pasta

Step-By-Step

1Saute garlic, onion and zucchini in olive oil for 3 - 5 minutes.

2Add tomatoes, lemon juice, basil and salt. Simmer while cooking pasta.

3Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain.

4Toss drained pasta with sauce and serve. Add grated parmesan, if desired.

5NOTE: The pasta will absorb some of the liquid of your sauce, so if your mixture gets a little dried out, you can add some of that reserved tomato juice to moisten it.
