What You'll Need:
1 tablespoon olive oil
4 cloves garlic, minced
teaspoon crushed red pepper
2 cups broccoli florets
2 summer squash, cut into 1/2-inch chunks

1 (14-1/2-ounce) can diced tomatoes with green pepper, celery, and onions, undrained
6 ounces whole grain penne pasta, cooked and drained
1 tablespoon fresh basil
shredded Parmesan cheese, to taste
What To Do:
