Skinny Chicken Mozzarella W/ "Hidden-Veggie" Marinara

6 chicken breasts, marinated and grilled {I love to marinate chicken in fat free Italian dressing for 1-2 hours before grilling. It gives chicken the best flavor.}
1-2 tbsp olive oil 
2 cloves of garlic, peeled and minced
1 zucchini, washed and diced
1 yellow squash washed and diced
1/2 purple onion, sliced
1 carrot, peeled and grated
1/2 cup mushrooms, washed {optional}
1 handful fresh spinach leaves, de-stemmed, washed and chopped
2-3 fresh basil leaves, washed and chopped {optional}
1 small jar of your favorite marinara sauce
Fresh mozzarella, sliced thin 
While chicken is grilling, saute all veggies in oil for 4-5 minutes.
Add salt and pepper. 
Put marinara sauce in a blender and add veggie mixture to it. 
Purée till well blended. 
When chicken is grilled, place on a cookie sheet lined with tinfoil. Pour desired amount of veggie marinara sauce onto each piece of chicken. Top with sliced mozzarella. Broil on high, second raxk from top, for 4 minutes, then on low till cheese is nice and browned, about 3-4 minutes.
