Creamy Veggies and Pasta with Crab

This is one of my absolute favorite meals. Great for a lunch or for a dinner, this is a two person recipe and each half is 350 calories.

2 tbs. oil
1/2 large zucchini, cut into strips
1 medium carrot, sliced on a diagonal
1 small onion, chopped
1 medium tomato, cut into wedges, seeds and pulp removed
1/2 avocado, pitted and cubed
1 cup fresh broccoli florets
2 tbs. plain nonfat yogurt
1/2 cup cooked bow-tie pasta
1/2 cup imitation crab or canned or frozen crab meat
1 tbs. red pepper flakes
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. onion powder
salt and pepper

In a large skillet, heat up the oil and saute first the onions and carrot until the onions are translucent and the carrot is tender. Add in the broccoli and zucchini and cook for two or three minutes until the broccoli turns bright green but is still crunchy Sprinkle on the seasonings, evenly. Remove from heat and stir in the yogurt for a bit of creaminess. Add in the tomato, avocado, crab meat and pasta and toss gently.
