Submitted by: CLEMING

Introduction

Sweet and savory at the same time - the jalepeno adds a nice flavor with just a hint of warmth.

Ingredients

    Eggplant - about 1/3 of an eggplant
    Zucchini - about 1/2 cup sliced
    Okra - Approx. 3-6 pods depending on size
    Jalepeno - 1 medium pepper
    Onion - 1/2 cup sweet onion
    Banana Pepper - Approx. 3 medium
    Green Pepper - Approx. 1/3 cup
    Worcestershire Sauce - 4 Tbsp.
    Ragu Pasta Sauce - 1 1/2 cup
    Barilla Plus or Whole Grain Pasta - 3 servings (each box holds around 7)

Directions

Slice zucchini and eggplant thinly then julian. We do not peel them. Onions, okra, and all peppers should be sliced as well.

Coat medium pan with Pam or other non-stick spray, add vegetables, and cover cooking over medium heat until vegetables are steamed. Stir often. They should be soft and yet still crisp.

In another pan at the same time heat water to boiling. Add pasta and cook 8-10 minutes.

Drain pasta and add to the steamed vegetables. Add sauce to coat and worcestershire sauce. Let cook a few minutes to allow flavors to mingle and sauce to heat.

Makes three servings of about 1 1/2 cups each.

See a vegetable you don't like? Do you have a favorite that's missing? This recipe is SO easy to adjust! Change sauce, pasta, veggies etc. Corn, tomatoes, asparagus etc. would be great options. You could even add ground beef, chicken or shrimp to personalize for you and your family. Just don't forget to account for the changes it might make to your nutritional values!
