It's always a good time for pasta! Right? This Eggplant Penne recipe will become one of your favorites. It's simple, healthy and so tasty! Let's get to it.
First of all, let's enjoy the fact that this recipe is as simple as it gets. Pasta should be that way! Simple and delicious. Not too many ingredients or steps, lots of flavors and post-meal happiness. Pasta, eggplant, tomatoes, spinach, onion and garlic, and olive oil. Nothing more!
You could even replace any veggies you might not have on hand or just don't like. Don't like eggplant? Try zucchini! Don't like spinach? Just leave it out. This recipe is flexible like that, which makes it perfect for families with kids. A great way to get those veggies in. The sweetness of the tomato sauce will hide the fact that they are eating vegetables they wouldn't even touch otherwise.
This is one of those recipes you could just prepare in a heartbeat! Make a big portion for the whole family to sit together and enjoy a fresh healthy prepared meal. Such an important ritual, right? It may be utopic to think we could make this happen every day but at least a couple of times a week or even just on Fridays (since work usually finishes early!) Better yet, you could involve your family in the whole process! Some do the chopping, others the boiling and you'll already be spending quality time together! Isn't that great? You could do the same thing on Saturdays while prepping some yummy vegan pizza! Making the dough and tomato sauce are perfect tasks for sharing and then you can all take credit for how delicious the meal was!
Bottom line is, there's something about Italian food that makes us fall in love with it!
