1
small zucchini, sliced, slices quartered (1 cup)
2
cans (14.5 oz each) diced tomatoes with green chiles, undrained
1
can (8 oz) tomato sauce
1
jar (4.5 oz) sliced mushrooms, undrained
1
teaspoon dried basil leaves
1/2
teaspoon salt
1/4
teaspoon pepper
1
cup shredded mozzarella cheese (4 oz)

Directions

Tips  

The green chiles in the canned tomatoes add a nice heat level to this sauce.

Penne pasta would be a nice substitute for the rotini.
