1/1 Photo of Eggplant Zucchini Bolognese
This is a good way to use fresh veggies...from the July/Aug '09 Simple and Delicious. I did add a little red wine to the cooked ground beef and let it cook off a little before I added the puree, and I also let the sauce simmer for a little while to marry the flavors.
