Great dish I will make again!! PS this dish is just as good the next day! (and I am not a "left-overs" type of girl!! Yum!"

I also added some fre..." See moresh tomatoes, basil and cooked for only 30 minutes because I wanted the vegetables nice and tender. Served over whole wheat pasta shells. Next time I want to try a little more "cheesy", some mozzarella and extra Romano. Thanks for the recipe I will definitely make this again!"
