Expert Tips

Any variety of tomato can be substituted for the plum tomatoes.

Use reduced-fat or fat-free Italian dressing, reduced-fat or fat-free mayonnaise and fat-free (skim) milk instead of the regular products.

Mix it up! Use one zucchini and one yellow summer squash instead of two zucchini.
