Whole Wheat Penne Pasta with Cherry Tomatoes, Black Olives & Zucchini


If this is not the healthiest and still the yummiest pasta recipe, then I don't know what it is said to be healthy. I omitted the cheese portion. Still it turned out really tasty. Make sure you add only cherry tomatoes to it and not the regular ones. I have made it twice already last week and I still continue to crave more of it.

What you need:

1 Whole Wheat Penne Pasta 2 cups
2 Cherry Tomatoes 1/2 cup cut into half
3 Black Olives 1/2 cup roughly chopped
4 Zucchini 1/2 cup chopped
5 Tomato Puree 1/2 cup
6 Oregano 1/2 tsp
7 Garlic 2 tbsp chopped
8 Virgin Olive Oil 1 tbsp
9 Italian Herbs 1 tbsp
10 Salt To taste
11 Sugar 1/2 tsp

Steps to Make:

Heat 3 glasses of water in a deep pan . Add few drops of oil and 1/4th tsp salt.
Once water starts to boil, add pasta and cook till its soft.
Drain and keep aside. Preserve about 2 tbsp of water from above.
Heat olive oil in a non stick pan.
Add chopped garlic and oregano.
Add zucchini and cook till it is soft.
Add cooked pasta, cherry tomatoes, olives and tomato puree and preseved water from cooked pasta.
Add salt and sugar.
Cover and cook for 3-4 minutes.
Add Italian herbs. Mix well and serve.
