There are several brands of jarred pizza or pasta sauce. I usually use Ragu’s or Prego’s. You’ll find this selection in the pasta aisle.

  • 1 cup (about 1 medium size) zucchini, grated
  • ¾ cup onions, diced
  • ½ cup whole wheat or multigrain bread crumbs, from 1 slice toast
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • Black pepper, to taste

Ingredients for Topping:

  • ½ cup pizza sauce or pasta sauce, see shopping tip
  • 2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese, grated
