Spaghetti and Eggplant "Meatballs"
Spaghetti and meatballs has multigenerational appeal, even when it goes vegetarian. A blend of eggplant and white beans provides the protein.

This beloved Italian soup isn't just hearty and healthy -- it's really flexible. Minestrone typically includes lots of leafy greens, other veggies, and beans. Which to choose? You're only limited by the contents of your refrigerator and pantry.
