Prep: 20 minutes
Bake: 15 minutes • Serves: 6

Nonstick cooking spray

1/2 cup chopped zucchini
1/4 cup packed baby spinach
6 (8-inch) whole wheat low-carb wraps
1/3 cup shredded low-moisture part-skim mozzarella cheese
1 garlic clove
1/2 cup whole peeled canned tomatoes
2 teaspoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning

1. Preheat oven to 400°. Spray rimmed baking pan with cooking spray.

2. Heat large, nonstick skillet over medium-high heat; spray with cooking spray. Add pepper; cook and stir 2 minutes. Add zucchini and spinach; cook and stir 2 minutes.

Dietitian’s Dish:
> Add black beans to the vegetable mixture for a dose of plant-based protein. To make these “taquitos” vegan, swap the mozzarella with a dairy-free cheese variety. Want them extra crispy? Pan-fry them in heart-smart oil instead of baking.
