Weight Watchers Pasta Primavera

This is soooo yummy!

2 teaspoons olive oil or vegetable oil
1 cup broccoli florets
2 medium tomatoes, peeled, seeded, and chopped
1/2 cup sliced yellow squash
1/2 cup sliced carrots
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 cup canned ready-to-serve low-sodium chicken broth
1 Tablespoon chopped fresh Italian (flat-leaf) parsley
1 Tablespoon chopped fresh basil
2 cups cooked penne pasta
1 Tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese
(fresh basil for garnish)

In 10-inch non-stick skillet, heat oil
Add broccoli, tomatoes, squash, carrot, and garlic and cook over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until squash is softened, 1 to 2 minutes.

Add broth, parsley, and basil and stir to combine.
Reduce heat to low, cover and cook until broccoli and carrots are tender, about 5 minutes.
Add pasta to vegetable mixture, stir to combine.

To serve, transfer pasta mixture to serving bowl, sprinkle with cheese, and garnish with fresh basil leaves, if desired.

Two servings.
Each serving provides: 4V, 1FA, 2B, 20C

The only info listed is what I posted underneath for each serving. When I got that recipe (when I was in Weight Watchers) they didn't have points, and I don't know how to convert it. It's a great recipe though. Maybe take it to your next meeting and ask your leader to calculate it for you.
