This is a good way of making the pasta healthy for diabetics. It has no cream, no cheese and yet taste was quite palatable. Tx for this recipe.

Light and full of flavors.. olive oil, garlic, basil & tomatoes with pasta is such an all time favorite Italian classic... and what makes this dish even more appetizing are the chunky tomato strips and broccoli florets... adding a great texture and volume to the whole experience.. Bon Appetito!!!

Chunky blanched tomatoes with crispy broccoli combine well with bow pasta to make a healthy carbo loaded dinner. Low in fat and I substituted the low fat cream with low fat milk to give the ideal base to the pasta.
