This is a delicious vegetarian marinara with a kick! If you want it a little less spicy feel free to play with the red pepper flakes, but this veggie packed sauce is a must try!

    This is an awesome recipe. I substituted zucchini for the eggplant and it was still wonderful. One teaspoon of red pepper flakes added a little zing.

    This was really good and I will make again with a few changes. First of all I will sauté my veggies first for added flavor. Also, I added bell pepper and lots of Italian seasonings and will do that next time as well. I added the pepper flakes to my portion only because the family doesn’t do spicy too well. When I plated mine I added the red pepper, a drizzle of EVOO and a little Parmesan cheese. Yummy :)
