Turkish Noodles with Mixed Vegetables
Medium size noodles for two people
1 small eggplant, peeled and cut in small pieces (soak in salty water for 20 min.)
1 small zucchini, peeled and cut in small cubes
7-8 cherry tomatoes, cut in half
2 garlic cloves, sliced
1 medium onion, sliced
2 tbsp, 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
3 tbsp crushed tomatoes, in can
1/2 cup hot water
1 tsp red pepper paste
1 tsp salt
Pepper for taste
Saute the onion with olive oil in a medium pan. Add the garlic. When it starts smelling, add all the other ingredients. Cover the lid and cook on medium-low heat for about 20-25 minutes.
In the meantime, boil the noodles. Drain, put 1 tbsp olive oil all over and stir.
Place the noodles in two service plates. Put the cooked vegetables on top. You can also use rice instead of noodles if you prefer it :)
