From Cooking Light. This makes enough for 8 oz. uncooked pasta plus vegetables mixed in. If you are not mixing in veg. increase pasta to 12 oz.

This was a surprisingly tasty light sauce for pasta. I used angel hair. I served this to a couple of teenagers who are used to regular, fat-laden sauce and they really liked it. I will make this recipe again.
