Pasta is one of my favorite foods to eat. But I really have to watch the sauces that I pair with it so I do not exceed my caloric intake for the day. For me, what could be better than a bowl of whole grain penne with a fresh, vegan sauce made from a couple of teaspoons of olive oil, onions, bell pepper, garlic, homegrown tomatoes and zucchini, plus a little pasta water?
In the time it takes to heat the water and cook the pasta my sauce is ready to be tossed with the penne. I foresee many great pasta dinners in the future using delicious, summer vegetables!
