Thank you SO much Emily B for this recipe! In general, a wonderful vegetarian dish, to use up and veggies youve got laying around, or from the garden!
I however, did have pasta sauce- I used Classico's Tomato and Basil. I substituted this for the tomatoes, and just made a thin coating of it on top of the noodles, or whenever called for. Other things i changed, just because it was what i had or needed to use up: Frozen spinach instead of fresh (about half a bag), yellow onion instead of red, 1 whole cup (at least) mozzarella inside the dish itself, and more for topping, 1 whole cup feta, dried basil and dried oregano, spoonful of minced garlic, a fat pinch of fresh thyme, 2 shallots, just one big glug of balsamic (im not a huge fan) and three glugs of olive oil.
Also, this fit in a 13x9 pan all the way up to the rim, and i had to end up cooking mine probably for 50 minutes.
The result is fresh, zesty, and generally attractive. I probably wont use the Thyme next time- thought it came out too overpowering, and i might add more feta to it, just because i love feta. A nice medely, even with the sauce instead of tomatoes- I might try it sauce-less next time, just to see how it turnes out. Good way to get your veggies in, and use them up before they go bad.
Absolutley excellent, easy, versitile, healthy, vegetarian, main dish!
