A yummy almost gooey pasta dish that satisfies that "bad for you" pasta craving. The shredded zucchini adds color but virtually no flavor. My picky eater(absolutely no cooked veggies) doesn't complain this way.

This is seriously the world's best spinach and artichoke dip! It's creamy and fairly low fat. I use low fat cream cheese, but you could use fat free. This slimmed down version of your favorite dip is easy to make--and it's light enough for you to load up on it! This can also become a decadent pasta sauce. (As a sauce, it makes 10 servings. You might need to thin it a bit with cooking water from the pasta.)

Picked this up from a church potluck. Very Very yummy for those chocolate/coffee lovers! I decided to make this a very naughty treat but you may use less of the icecream and whipped cream to make it easier to fit into your calorie budget.
