1 clove garlic, minced
2 medium zucchini, cut into medium pieces
1 small eggplant, cut into medium pieces
1 red bell pepper, cut into medium strips
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 package whole wheat or other whole grain pasta
pasta sauce (optional)
Cook pasta according to instructions. While the pasta is cooking, heat olive oil in a large skillet. Cook the garlic until it starts to brown. Add the vegetables and salt. Cook covered, stirring occasionally until the vegetables are soft. Add 1-2 tablespoons of water if the vegetables do not provide enough water during the cooking.
Serve the vegetables over the pasta and top with pasta sauce if desired.
