"aubergine and courgette"? Oh brother... is that like "eggplant and zucchini"?


This is a great tasting, quick and easy recipe if you replace all the fresh vegetables (which can be time consuming to prepare), with a jar of Barilla Mediterranean Vegetable sauce, then add onion, mushrooms, basil, parsley, the tin of tomatoes, garlic and cheese. We used 6 eggs and it was a sufficient meal for two dinners and a large lunch the next day. Highly recommend you try this alternative option to make it a quick meal, which is what omelettes are mainly about (other than being a yummy way of using leftovers) : )
