This hearty recipe is perfect as the weather cools and you're starting to crave cozier foods. Use fresh veggies from your garden if you can, but store-bought produce works fine too.


  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 small eggplant, cut into 1-inch pieces (4 cups)
  • 1 medium zucchini, coarsely chopped (2 cups)
  • 2 tomatoes or 4 roma tomatoes, coarsely chopped (1 cup)
  • 1/3 cup chopped red onion
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 19 - ounce can cannellini beans (white kidney beans), rinsed and drained
  • 1 3/4 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 cup dried whole grain elbow macaroni
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • Kosher salt
  • Ground black pepper (optional)
  • Snipped fresh basil
  • Grated Parmesan cheese


  1. In a very large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add eggplant, zucchini, tomatoes, red onion and garlic. Cook, uncovered, 7 to 10 minutes or until vegetables are almost tender, stirring occasionally.
  2. Add beans, broth, pasta and crushed red pepper. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Cover and simmer 7 to 10 minutes more or until vegetables and pasta are tender, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat. Season with salt and pepper; serve topped with basil and Parmesan cheese.


  • If you don't like eggplant, increase the other vegetables or substitute an equal volume of chopped or sliced mushrooms.
