That’s when this recipe comes handy and cooks under 20 mins.  Both broccoli and eggplant have a light taste and they compliment the white wine sauce beautifully.

You can make the sauce thicker or lighter as per taste and add extra cheese if need be. * Just remember to use wine in room temperature as you don’t want to pour chilled wine in extra hot veggies, it will spoil the taste of your entire dish.

    • Molly Kumar September 29, 2015 (5:12 am)

      That would be perfect. Thanks Mel.

  • ludmilla September 26, 2015 (1:53 am)

    Looks delicious!!- I love white wine pasta sauces because they are so versatile and delicious that you can use them to create literally hundreds of dishes.

  • Leslie @ Bessie Bakes September 25, 2015 (9:20 pm)

    I love that you lightened up the sauce with white wine. Honestly, every time I have a bottle of wine in the fridge, most of it ends up in a sauce since I’m a light drinker!

    • Molly Kumar September 29, 2015 (5:11 am)

      Seriously, me too…I prefer putting wine in such sauces rather than throwing them away.

  • Mary (The Godmother @ Goodie Godmother) September 25, 2015 (5:20 pm)

    We make something similar, only without the eggplant. I really like eggplant though, so I’m going to pin this to try next time. 🙂

    • Molly Kumar September 29, 2015 (5:10 am)

      That would be great, I’d love to hear how it turned out. Thanks.

  • shobha September 25, 2015 (4:43 pm)

    Different combination of veggies in white sauce.. looks yummy.. always like anything made in white sauce.

    • Molly Kumar September 29, 2015 (5:10 am)

      White Sauce is just so yum, agree with you 100% Shobha.

  • waagmi September 25, 2015 (4:34 pm)
