Could I substitute 3 tablespoons of vegetable oil and Italian herb mix no salt for the italian seasoning. Dietitian comment: Yes, this change will not impact the sodium, potassium or phosphorus content.

What kind of fruit am I allowed??? Dietitian comment: Recommendations vary based on your potassium level. Ask your dietitian or physician if you need to limit potassium, If not, most fruits and acceptable. Read the DaVita website article "Potassium and Chronic Kidney Disease" for more information on low and high potassium fruits.

Cooked it with spiral noodles. A nice summer dish. The Italian dressing gives it a nice flavor without overpowering the pasta, and vegetables. I also added diced onions to it for an even better flavor.
