Easy and light mushroom pasta was born last week! When I husband told me that he was very hungry and wanted to eat right away! I didn’t have anything prepared at the moment. So I opened my fridge …..and this is that I can up with! Hope you like it as much a we did!

Not only is this dish absolutely delicious! It’s super low fat! If you want it to be fat free- use water instead of oil when sauteing

I have a huge garden this year! That is why I went down from 3 to 1 post per week.

My name is Yuna. And I love zucchini.

I love it so much, that i have 18 zucchini plants! Yes! They are different varieties and planted different times. But that is a lot of zucchini!

What is zucchini good for? What is the health benefits that it has?
