ZUCCHINI MARINARA BAKE

4 Oct

About 2 pounds zucchini, cut in strips or diced

2 oz pasta of choice, cooked according to package directions

2 1/2 ox. mozzarella cheese, shredded or cut in small slices

2 tomatoes, diced

About 6 oz. ‘baby bello’ mushrooms, sliced

1 1/2 cups Trader Joe’s marinara sauce (60 calories per 1/2 cup)

2 tsp olive oil

Spray 8X8 pan w/Pam or other veg. spray.  Layer all ingredients twice, and put extra squash, mushrooms tomatoes and sauce on top.  Bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes.  4 seervings, 210 calories each.  Yummy, and you could vary this recipe quite a bit.  Add onions or other veggies.  If you need more oil in your diet, add 4 tsps instead of 2, and this will increase the calories to  230 per serving.  If cheese or pasta is your thing, add more and adjust the calories.
