Expert Tips

We recommend reduced-fat Italian dressing because it clings very well to the pasta, vegetables and ham. In regular Italian dressing, the herbs and spices often separate and sink to the bottom of the bottle.

Select small zucchini, which are younger, more tender and have thinner skins. Look for skins that are blemish free with a vibrant color.
