Italian Stir-Fry

From: Rochelle

With finals coming up, I wanted a quick dinner that was filling, light, and packed full of nutrients! I got the original idea for this recipe from a neighbor of mine. I really like this dish and is great for vegetarians! Don't get thrown-off by the word stir-fry. It is not your typical stir-fry. .

Italian Stir-Fry
 1/2 Onion-Sliced
1 Small Zucchini-sliced
1 small yellow squash-sliced
1/2 C Carrots- Large shreds
1 C Brown Rice-Cooked
1 T Italian Seasoning
Olive Oil
Salt & Pepper to taste
Tomatoe Pasta Sauce

1. Saute the onions in a fry pan until they are slightly brown.
2. Add the squash, zucchini, and carrots to the pan and cook until desired tenderness. I like mine still semi-crunchy. As they are cooking drizzle olive oil over them and add salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning.

3. Add the cooked rice to the pan. Can add as much or as little as you would like. We had leftover rice in the fridge, so we just used what we had.
4. Add about 1 cup of pasta sauce. Add more if desired.

It's quick, easy, and VERY healthy! Enjoy!
