That looks really yummy. What is the recipe?

The original recipe is to serve 2. I tripled it so I'd have some to share & some to freeze.
2 teaspoon olive oil
1 garlic clove minced
1 can (14.5 oz) stewed tomatoes in juice
1/2 cup ditalini (or other short tube pasta)
5 oz frozen cauliflower
1 medium zucchini, quartered lengthwise & cut crosswise into 1/2 inch pieces. [I used carrots instead since I hate zucchini.]
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme [I didn't have this, but probably could have used some spice.]
coarse salt & ground pepper

In a medium saucepan, heat oil over med. Add garlic & cook, stirring until you can smell it, 1 min.
Add tomatoes with juice & 2 cups water; bring to a boil.
Add pasta & boil for 5 min; stir in cauliflower, zucchini, and thyme.
Season with S&P.
Reduce heat; simmer 5 min or until veggies are tender.

Enjoy! It was great. I over-added the pasta (since I love pasta) and it was too much.
I do suggest doubling OR tripling the recipe so you've got enough to save!

FYI: Just made my second GIANT batch! Had some for dinner, 1 serving to freeze for me, 2 servings to freeze for pregnant friend and about 4 more servings in the fridge for meals this week.
It was MUCH better with more salt, pepper & I added the dried thyme. Also, sprinkle some Parmesan cheese on top for a little extra yummy.
