Ingredients

    Mushrooms, 1 lb sliced (buttons are fine or use portobellas)
    Yellow Bell Pepper, 1 medium, coarsely chopped
    Garlic, 4 cloves, pressed or minced
    Onion, 1 medium yellow, coarsely chopped
    Zucchini, 2-3 medium, cut in half lengthwise then coarsely chopped
    Classico Tomato and Basil Sauce - 2-26 oz jars
    Rosemary, 2 T dried, crumbled
    Oregano, 2 T dried
    Basil, 2 T dried
    Red pepper flakes to tase
    Olive oil, 1-2 T
    Bionaturae Organic Fettucine, 100% Whole Wheat, 1-16 oz package
    Parmigiana Reggiano, freshly grated over plated dishes if desired

Directions

Sautee garlic in olive oil; add onions. Cook until soft. Add vegetables. Cook until tender but still a bit crunchy, stirring during the cooking process to be sure everything is cooking evenly. Add pasta sauce and spices. Stir. Simmer sauce for 45 minutes (cover for the first 20 minutes).

Towards the end of the sauce cooking time, fill another pot with water. Bring to a boil. Add pasta. Cook around 9 minutes until desired doneness. Remember that the longer you cook pasta, the higher the glycemic index is.

Plate pasta and sauce. Grate Parmigiana Reggiano over dish to tase. Enjoy!

Cook smaller portions of pasta for fewer servings, and freeze the extra sauce for up to 2 months.

NOTE: Pasta is included in the calorie count, but the Pamigiana Reggiano is not.
