Courtesy Of Ms. Jane Brody and her Good Food Cookbook printed in 1985. We loved this stuff,and I made it a lot on weekends, especially in the summer when vegetables were cheap and abundant,before that Kiddo came along. I'd usually make more pasta,since I was going through all the work anyway,and more of the vegetables we liked the best. It would usually last us for about 3 meals. It is very time consuming, but,really worth it when you're finished. And like any recipe, feel free to add any other vegetable or seasoning you like.
