Eggplant Zucchini Bolognese
Total TimePrep: 30 min. Cook: 20 min.
This dish was so simple to make that I was wowed by the flavors it packed. One thing I like to do is cook with natures seasoning in place of salt and pepper. I did this to the vegetables prior to roasting them. Once the dish was together I added the Parmesan cheese. The Parmesan made the dish taste complete. It had simple yet sophisticated flavors.
Could the leftovers be frozen??
I was so impressed with how this tasted--and I followed the recipe exactly as it was written. Blew away my expectations. The roasted veggies could be a side dish all on their own with any meal. Will definitely be making this again and again!
My family loved it. I roasted roma tomatoes with balsamic vinegar, basil, salt and pepper on a sheet tray in the oven with the veggies. Put it into the blender for Tomato puree. I also roasted the veggies longer because we like soft veggies.
I was looking for a new zucchini recipe amd came across this. It came out delicious and was easy. I have a feeling it will make great leftovers too.
A great recipe that used a lot of garden fresh veggies from my grandma's garden. Will definitely make this again. I used group turkey instead of beef.
Just loved this recipe, however, altered it a bit. Family is not that into the zucchini. I added, in addition to the ground beef, Perri Sausage, or any other brand of sausage, you may like. I used Hot Sausage, browned with the hamburg, or you can bake it ahead of time, and cut into small bite sizes. Also, found that the Italian Seasoning, was WAY WAY to Heavy, and over whelmed the entire Dish. I would ad HALF the amount, next time I make this. This is a fast meal to make for last minute get togethers, served with a fresh Salad and Garlic Bread! Yummy, Yummy, Yummy!
After reading the reviews, I opted to make a few adjustments. You can mix & match as you like. Last night, I roasted a big sweet onion, eggplant, zucchini, summer squash, and sliced mushrooms. For my sauce, I just had 2 cans of diced italian style tomatoes (14.5oz ea.) and 1 can of tomato sauce on hand. I left out the brown sugar and added a bit of italian seasoning. Oh- we are big italian sausage lovers so that it was I used. Big fans of this recipe!!
We really liked this. I didn't have any puree on hand, so I used marinara sauce in it's place. I also added more garlic and used whole wheat pasta.
This was fantastic. I loved the roasted eggplant added to the dish. It was simple yet delicious. The only thing I changed up was the onion preparation. I sauteed them in olive oil and butter with a bit of salt. I put that in with the noodles and then used the saute pan to make the beef and prepare per recipe. I loved it as is, but my meat-loving other half would have preferred more meat. I could see adding sliced sausage to up the ante a bit.
