From Cooking Light, this is an amazingly flavorful pasta dish. Only 1/2 lb. ground beef and a lot of healthy veggies. Definitely a great meal for a cool night!

    We all loved this bolognaise. I changed only one step: After cutting the eggplant I roasted it in the oven and then added to the sauce. <br/>If somebody is vegetarian, this recipe would be great even without meat!<br/>Thanks for posting this recipe. Done for ZWT7
