Diet Recipe: Seafood with wine pasta sauce

The following recipe is a tasty meal for low-calorie dieters: it has only 200 calories.

Ingredients (for 1)
* 27 grams of fussili or other pasta (100 cals)
* 60 grams of small shrimp (60 cals)
* 75 grams of zucchini (10 cals)
* 60 grams of button mushrooms (10 cals)
* 100 grams of canned chopped tomatoes (20 cals)
* 1/4 of a cup of red wine (0 cals)
* Salt and pepper to taste (0 cals)

1. Boil pasta and when done, drain as usual. Do not add any butter.
2. Wash and cut zucchini in thin slices. Wash and cut mushrooms vertically in thin slices.
3. Pour the chopped tomatoes on a food processor and blend them for a few seconds.
4. Add all ingredients (except pasta) in a pot under medium heat.
5. When the sauce is thickened a few minutes later, serve immediately, next to the pasta.

Tip: For variety, instead of just shrimp, you can use a mix of shrimp, clams and small calamari. All three share similar calorie information.
