Mediterranean Spaghetti with Eggplants, Broccoli & Garlic-herb Tomatoes topped with Feta Cheese


I love pasta! I love it for its convenience, versatility and friendliness.   I can have it pretty much every day, but I try to limit to once a week.  If I am running low on time, or when I am trying to save items from the fridge, pasta can act as my savior.  If you’re looking for a healthy pasta dish with full on flavor then read on.  The ingredients blend well together and the feta cheese is such a great add-on.  I used eggplants and broccoli: eggplants for me, broccoli for the girls…oh and the light tomato sauce is mostly for my hub, not to mention all the nutritional benefits of the loaded garlic, lycopene benefits.  In addition, the leftover sauce (non-cooked) can be used in meats to add flavor, or a salsa dip.  The feta cheese is optional and my girls did opt out from the cheese, but my hub and I did not.

To read more on lycopene benefits, specially for your skin, I found this blog pretty helpful.  http://lycopene-face-creams.blogspot.com/
