Vegetables Bolognese

Recipe from

Southern Living


1/2 cup dried tomatoes
1/2 cup boiling water
2 medium-size sweet onions, chopped
2 small zucchini, chopped
1 medium-size green bell pepper, chopped
1 medium-size red bell pepper, chopped
1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 (26-ounce) jar spicy pasta sauce
1/2 cup chopped fresh basil
12 ounces penne pasta, cooked


Stir together dried tomatoes and 1/2 cup boiling water in a bowl; let stand 30 minutes. Drain, chop, and set aside.

Sauté onion and next 5 ingredients in hot oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat 6 to 8 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Stir in chopped tomato.

Stir in pasta sauce, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat; stir in basil, and simmer, stirring occasionally, 5 minutes. Serve over hot cooked pasta.

Note: For testing purposes only, we used Newman's Own Diavolo Sauce for spicy pasta sauce.
