Amazing Summer Vegetable Pasta Sauce

The veggies are rolling in!  We love it! We've been so lucky to have an amazing and wide variety of vegetables each week from Heartbeet Organics on PEI.  They are fabulous! You can get their stuff at the farmer's market Wednesdays and Saturdays if you're on PEI.  However, with a bit of searching, I hope you'll be able to locate a mix of fresh vegetables wherever you are.  You can tweak ingredients, if necessary, but the mix of fresh zucchini, eggplant, cherry tomatoes and onions really makes this dish burst with flavor.  Leftover pasta and sauce (mixed together) was great even when we had it as leftovers the next day! Enjoy!

The sauce is packed with fresh vegetables that cook and then simmer together to create a wonderfully rich sauce.  We had multi-colored cherry tomatoes, which added an extra bit of color into the mix.
