Chicken and Zucchini Marinara

Submitted by: CELLE98

Introduction

This has been a family favorite for years! But I've modified it a bit to lower the fat and calories. I used Ragu Light Tomato & Basil instead of marinara and you can lower the fat and calories even further by using part skim mozzarella. This has been a family favorite for years!

  • This is one of my family's favorite recipes. I use the original recipe from "My Great Recipes" (which I bought over 20 years ago!), but this lighter version works as well. If you really want to do it right, make your own marinara sauce... definitely worth the effort. - 9/10/11
