Pasta Salad

12 ounces (bow tie) pasta
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/4 cup low-sodium chicken broth
1 garlic clove, chopped
2 medium onions, chopped
1 can (28 ounces) unsalted diced tomatoes in juice
1 pound mushrooms, sliced
1 red bell pepper, sliced
1 green bell pepper, sliced
2 medium zucchini, shredded
1/2 teaspoon basil
1/2 teaspoon oregano
8 romaine lettuce leaves

Fill a large pot 3/4 full with water and bring to a boil. Add the pasta and cook until al dente (tender), 10 to 12 minutes, or according to the package directions. Drain the pasta thoroughly. Place pasta in a large serving bowl. Add the olive oil and toss. Set aside.

In a large skillet, heat the chicken broth over medium heat. Add the garlic, onions and tomatoes. Saute until the onions are transparent, about 5 minutes. Add the remaining vegetables and saute until tender-crisp, about 5 minutes. Stir in the basil and oregano.

Add the vegetable mixture to the pasta. Toss to mix evenly. Cover and refrigerate until well chilled, about 1 hour.

Place lettuce leaves on individual plates. Top with the pasta salad and serve immediately.
