Have no fear of trying our healthy, veggie-filled Spicy Baked Linguine. Because the recipe calls for salsa, you control the heat level. Plus, you can never go wrong with zucchini, peppers and eggplant!

What You'll Need

  • 1 pound linguine
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 medium zucchini, cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 1 large red bell pepper, cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 1 medium eggplant, peeled and cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 1 (26-ounce) jar light spaghetti sauce
  • 1 cup salsa
  • 3/4 cup (3 ounces) shredded reduced-fat mozzarella cheese

What to Do

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 9- x 13-inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. Cook the linguine according to the package directions; drain, rinse, drain again, and set aside.

  2. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a soup pot over medium-high heat; add the zucchini, pepper, and eggplant. Sauté for 6 to 8 minutes, or until tender.

  3. Stir in the spaghetti sauce and salsa, then add the linguine and mix well. Place the linguine mixture in the baking dish.

  4. Top with the cheese and bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until the linguine is heated through and the cheese is melted.

Is there something I can use to replace the eggplant? I can't stand the taste of eggplants.

Hello! You can use yellow summer squash instead. Enjoy!

This looks absolutely delicious! But really.....60 carbs per serving? That is my total daily carb allotment. I could maybe have one bite! Definitely not a diabetic friendly recipe!

Hi there! While this recipe may be on the higher end of the limits for a diabetic diet, it does fall within the guidelines as set by the American Diabetes Association. All of our recipes meet the standards set by the American Diabetes Association to be considered "diabetic-friendly."

We recommend always speaking with your doctor or nutritionist first to determine what can be included in your meal plan or not.

This dish was absolutely delicious and super easy. Even my husband who isn't a big veggie lover enjoyed this and ate leftovers the next night!
