1 1/2 teaspoons minced fresh rosemary
2 garlic cloves, minced
3 cups chopped zucchini
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 pound ground chicken
4 cups fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
1/4 cup dry white wine

1 bay leaf
3/4 cup (3 ounces) grated Parmesan cheese


Heat oil in a large Dutch oven over medium heat. Add onion, rosemary, and garlic; sauté 2 minutes. Add zucchini, black pepper, salt, and chicken; cook 5 minutes until chicken is browned, stirring to crumble.
