This freezes well !! Makes two good size meals with plenty for leftovers.


PASTA AND VEGGIES

1 large eggplant, peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes
1 large red onion, cut into 1-inch pieces
2 medium yellow sweet peppers, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 tablespoon olive or canola oil
1/2 teaspoon salt

SAUCE:
1 1/2 cups chopped onions
2 teaspoons olive or canola oil
6 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1 (28 ounce) can crushed tomatoes
1 (14.5 ounce) can diced tomatoes, undrained
1/4 cup minced fresh parsley
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon sugar
1/8 teaspoon dried thyme

1 - 1 pound box ziti or other small tube pasta
4 cups chopped fresh spinach
1 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese


Spray a large baking dish with Pam

Combine the eggplant, red onion and yellow peppers. Drizzle with oil; sprinkle with salt.

Bake, uncovered, at 400 degrees F for 35-45 minutes or until edges of peppers begin to brown, stirring every 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a saucepan, saute onions in oil until tender. Add garlic, red pepper flakes and cook and stir for 1 minute. Add the tomatoes, parsley, salt, pepper, sugar and thyme. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 15 minutes.

Cook pasta according to package directions; drain.

In two greased 2-qt. baking dishes, spread 1/2 cup sauce each. In each dish, layer a fourth of the pasta, a fourth of the roasted vegetables and 1/2 cup sauce. Top with 2 cups spinach and 1/2 cup sauce. Top with remaining roasted vegetables, pasta and sauce.

Cover with foil and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.

Uncover; sprinkle with cheese. Bake -10-15 minutes longer or until heated through and cheese is melted.

I use a few websites. Most all foodi sites let you select by diet.
Vegetarian Times, Meatless Monday's, Eating Well come to mind
though I many I go to.
My husband and I have only been vegetarian a year so I understand where
you're at.
Indian and Thia were new to us but a wonderful change.
Nut loaves come in many varieties.
soups too.
Wheatberries, lentils,,legumes all make great main dish or salad.
