Versitile Veggie Melange

Versitile Veggie Melange
From: anyrose

Very low cal, very high fiber, very delicious

1 bag frozen veggie mix (best combo for this is the broccoli/carrot/cauliflower mix, but whatever your favorite is will do)
1 jar chunky garden style pasta sauce
Italian herbs to taste
freshly ground pepper to taste
one small pinch kosher salt (yeah, I'm an AB fan)

Cook the veggies in a sauce pan til heated through but still firm (al denté)

Drain off into a colender, then place said colender in an ice bath to stall the cooking

Pour the psta sauce into the same sauce pan, and heat to just before a full simmer.

Add back the veggies, then add the herbs, pepper, and salt, and stir to combine.

Allow to simmer until the veggies are heated again, but still mostly al denté.

Serve as a side dish to your favorite protein, or over pasta, or by itself as a healthy lunch alternative.
