I have really been loving these little diced tomatoes for healthy cooking lately. They come in several flavors, but my favorite is basil, garlic, and oregano. You can toss these in soups and pasta dished. You can throw them in casseroles and veggies dishes. They add a really nice taste to any dish that is bland for only 50 calories per half cup serving.
here's my new super easy, really tasty, low calorie, meatless monday, favorite original recipe...
1 can of del monte diced tomatoes with basil, garlic, and oregano
4-5 cloves of garlic (diced)
1 onion (diced)
3-4 zucchini or any summer squash (cut into bite sized cubes)
Heat olive oil in a skillet. Sauté garlic and onions until they begin to brown. Add zucchini. Sauté on high for a few more minutes. Add can of diced tomatoes. Cook until most liquid has boiled off.
So easy. So good. Tons of flavor. Practically no fat. Very low calories. Lots of veggies. Makes a great side dish. Or throw in some pasta. Tonight we had it just as described above along with some mashed potatoes and parsnips. Last time I made this I used both zucchini and yellow squash and it was just as good. Try it and tell me what you think. This is my first original recipe! What should I call it?
