Grilled Veggie Fettuccine Salad Recipe

This is my mother's favorite meatless meal. It is great either as a side dish for dinner or the main course for lunch. It is so colorful and is also delicious.—Mary Ann Dell, Phoenixville, Pennsylvania
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Cook: 20 min. YIELD:6 servings

Ingredients

  • 8 ounces uncooked fettuccine
  • 1 large green pepper
  • 1 large sweet red pepper
  • 1 small eggplant, peeled and cut into 3/4-inch-thick slices
  • 3 onion slices (3/4 inch thick)
  • Cooking spray
  • 1 medium tomato, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper

Directions

  • 1. Cook fettuccine according to package directions. Cut ends off of peppers, then cut lengthwise into quarters. Coat eggplant and onion slices on both sides with cooking spray.
  • 2. Using long-handled tongs, moisten a paper towel with cooking oil and lightly coat the grill rack. Grill the vegetables, covered, over medium heat for 4-5 minutes on each side or until crisp-tender. Cool slightly; cut into bite-size pieces.
  • 3. Drain fettuccine and rinse in cold water. Transfer to a large bowl; add grilled vegetables and tomato. In a small bowl, whisk the remaining ingredients; pour over fettuccine mixture and toss to coat. Refrigerate until serving. Yield: 6 servings.
