- 1 package Modern Table Red Lentil Rotini Pasta
- 2-3 Tablespoons olive oil
- 2 cups eggplant, cubed small (1/2" cubes)
- 1 cup cherry tomatoes
- 1 cup zucchini, chopped into half moons
- 1 cup yellow squash, chopped into half moons
- 2 cloves garlic, minced or pressed
- 1 – 15 oz. can whole coconut milk
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/2 Tablespoon Italian Herb seasoning
- 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
- 1 Tablespoon nutritional yeast (more if desired)
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt (more or less to taste)
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper (more or less to taste)
- Prepare veggies as instructed above. For zucchini and yellow squash, chop off the ends and slice in half lengthwise. From there, slice into "half moons" about 1/4 thick. For eggplant, chop into cubes about 1/2" square.
- In a large nonstick or cast iron skillet, heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil to medium. Add eggplant and cherry tomatoes and cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
- After 10 minutes, the eggplant and tomatoes should be softening. Add zucchini and squash – and another tablespoon of olive oil if necessary – then sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon each of salt and pepper. Sauté for 5 minutes. At this point, use the back of your spoon or spatula to gently smash the tomatoes. Add in the garlic and sauté for 3 more minutes.
- Add coconut milk and water and bring to a boil. Once boiling, add pasta, herb seasoning, red pepper flakes, nutritional yeast, and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Stir to combine. Cook 12-15 minutes until pasta is al dente and the sauce has thickened.
- Serve and enjoy!
