Angel hair pasta with mediterranean sauce and vegeburger


Dinner tonight was simple but healthy and tasty. We had angel hair pasta with a chunky vegetable and vegeburger sauce. Also, thinly sliced and fried zucchini seasoned with garlic. Later, the girls had a pina colada popsicle for their evening snack and my husband and I ate a delicious grapefruit.
1/2 medium onion, roughly chopped
1 cup white mushrooms, sliced
1/2 can black olives, halved
1/4 cup green olives, halved
1/4 eggplant, peeled and diced
4 tbsp capers
1 can petite diced tomatoes
2 cups tomato sauce or commercially prepared pasta sauce
1 can Worthington vegetarian burger (vegan)
pan spray or 2 tbsp olive oil
2 cloves fresh garlic, peeled and then crushed and minced
2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
1/2 tsp oregano
Sautee onion until soft and then add other vegetables and vegetarian burger and sautee another couple minutes. Then, add the tomato sauce, spices and diced tomatoes. Cook until bubbling. Serve over angel hair pasta, prepared according to package directions.
