Vegetable Penne ( Exotic Diabetic Recipe )

An Italian meal is incomplete without pasta – and here is a luscious pasta recipe with loads of vegetables, whipped up especially for diabetics. Usually, pasta is high in calories as it is made using a generous quantity of cheese, but the health-conscious need not worry any more, as pasta can be made low calorie by using a moderate amount of mozzarella cheese and less oil.

It can be made healthier too by using whole wheat pasta if it is easily available, however do not fret if it isn’t – this recipe is fine by itself if had in moderate amounts occasionally.
