Nutritional Pasta Recipe with Lemon, Zucchini and Parmesan

This light, bright summer dish combines lemon, fresh tomatoes (preferably off the vine) and zucchini with Greek yogurt for a healthy kick. Greek yogurt, like all unsweetened yogurts, is a great source of protein, calcium, potassium, and vitamins B6 and B12. But Greek yogurt has twice the protein of its counterparts and less lactose. Enjoy!


  • 8 ounces pasta, cooled
  • ½ cup nonfat, plain Greek yogurt
  • ¼ cup Parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
  • 3 medium zucchinis, slice lengthwise and then thinly slice each half
  • 2 garlic cloves thinly sliced
  • ½ pint cherry tomatoes halved



  1. Prepare pasta, rinse in cold water, set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine yogurt, parmesan, lemon zest with fresh ground pepper to taste.
  3. Heat olive oil in a large skillet and add zucchini and garlic. Sauté until soft and just translucent.
  4. Stir in tomatoes for 2 minutes.
  5. Add the veggies to the yogurt mixture and stir.
  6. Add pasta and stir. Enjoy!
