Amanda, I made my go-to healthy pasta tonight. It's kid friendly and easy as can be. I found it years ago while searching to get greens into my kids and now it's a staple. I tweaked it a bit to suit our tastes.


 Pasta con zucchini

2 zucchini

2 tbsp basil

zest from one lemon

2 tbsp olive oil

2 cloves minced garlic

box of penne

salt to taste

Grate zucchini and squeeze to remove excess water.  Meanwhile heat oil and garlic on low. Add lemon zest after a minute. Add zucchini and basil. Heat water to boil and cook penne al dente. Strain and combine pasta with zucchini
