December 31-Marinara Vegetables

Happy New Year! 

Tonight I was feeling a little weighed down from a week of Christmas cookies, peanut butter bars, assorted cheeses, candied nuts, chocolates, cheesecakes, and more cookies. It's been a tasty month, but has left me feeling a little sluggish. 

In honor of fresh beginnings and the start of a new year, I came up with this light and healthy pasta alternative. Enjoy!

Marinara Vegetables
Assorted vegetables (I used snap peas, broccoli, baby carrots, spinach, and an onion)
Your favorite pasta sauce
Mozzarella cheese
Parmesan cheese crumbles and crushed red pepper 

1. Boil vegetables until cooked through. If using spinach, wait to add spinach to the pot until the vegetables are just about done. Drain water.
2. Add pasta sauce and stir to coat vegetables.
3. Add chopped mozzarella cheese. Stir to melt.
4. Serve topped with parmesan and crushed red pepper, if desired.
