1/2 c. red wine

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

garlic salt & pepper to taste


*On the stovetop in a pot of boiling water, add in eggplant, zucchini, and green pepper and cook until al dente. Drain vegetables and place back in empty pot. Pour in a jar of your favorite pasta sauce. Simmer on stovetop on low heat.

*In a skillet on the stovetop, add in olive oil, onions and garlic. Sauté until light brown.

*Add in the onion and garlic mixture to the pot of vegetables and tomato sauce.

Serve hot or cold! This dish goes great on top of our favorite pasta. It's also a great side dish to accompany meat, chicken and/or fish. It's simply delicious over brown or white rice too! Once, cooked this dish can also be served cold!
