Low Fat Minetrone Soup and Salad Time

Back on the Weight Watcher wagon again. I have been really bad the last couple of weeks to today is a new start.
I like making very colorful salads with everything that is in the refrigerator. My favorite reduced fat salad dressing is Good Seasoning prepared the less oil way.

Reduced Fat Good Seasonings ® Italian Salad Dressing
1 packet Good Seasonings ® Italian Salad Dressing Mix
1/4 cup vinegar
1/4 cup + 3 Tbsp water
1/4 cup canola oil

Mix Well!

Low Fat Minestrone Soup
Adapted from
1 onion, chopped
2 stalks celery, chopped
2 carrots, chopped
8 oz rutabagas, chopped
2 parsnips, chopped
4 cups chicken broth
14 oz canned tomatoes, chopped
2 tsp dried Italian seasoning
1 oz uncooked whole-wheat pasta*
Salt and pepper to taste
Cooking spray

Lightly coat a pot with cooking spray and saute the onion, celery, carrots, parsnips and rutabaga for about 3 minutes.
Add the broth, tomatoes and Italian seasoning. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer over a very low heat for about 15 minutes.
Add pasta to saucepan. Cook until pasta is tender, about 10 minutes more.

* I used Pappardelle's Sweet Potato Orzo.
