Last night and tonight we had a wonderfully healthy and tasty dish for dinner. Craig urged me to share it because he says it was one of the best foods he has had in a long time. The recipe is not a "diet" meal, but for a pasta based meal it is very healthy. It came to me as one of the "daily dishes" I get as emails from allrecipes.com
I'm posting the full original version below.
The changes I made were to use whole wheat penne pasta, to add two peeled and cubed Japanese eggplant to the vegetable mix, and to use cubed Roma tomatoes instead of cherry tomatoes because they were less expensive. I did not use any butter to saute the onions, but I did use the Romano cheese. I figured 1/2 cup divided by six servings is not a lot of cheese.
12 oz. of penne plus all the vegetables made a huge pot of food. We will be eating it for a third night tomorrow, so next time I will cut the pasta to 6 oz. but still use all of the vegetables and other ingredients.
One other thought is that since I'm still in a house I had no problem with using a large tray in the oven for roasting the veggies. In an RV you might have to do two batches, or roast them on the grill.
