2 spring onions
cherry or grape tomatoes (chopped in half)
4 tsp olive oil
salt and pepper
crushed red pepper flakes
8 oz whole wheat spaghetti
1/4 cup fat-free chicken broth 
Parmesan cheese 

What to do: 

    Cook pasta according to directions
    While pasta is cooking, in a large saute pan, heat pan on medium, add olive oil when pan is hot. Add garlic and shallots to the pan and saute about 1 minute. Add zucchini and season with salt and pepper. Cook about 2 minutes, add tomatoes, crushed red pepper flakes, and chicken broth. Stir for another minute.

    Drain pasta when done and toss the pasta well with zucchini, serve with grated Parmesan cheese (optional).
