This recipe is inspired by one of my favorite You Tiber Olga from @Fablunch. I have changed her recipe a little bit. But believe me when I say, this dish is absolutely delicious! The healthy and hearty vegetables coated with creamy and flavorful sauce take you to the scenes of you favorite movie … I chose eggplants, zucchini and spring potatoes as my vegetables. But you can use yellow squash, tomato or bell pepper too. Serve over your favorite healthy grain or with a peace of whole wheat bread and enjoy!
