Vegetable Ragù Recipe


Since Natalya has a whole garden of fresh vegetables, she made a dish that took her back to her childhood. Follow this simple and tasty recipe. For vegetable lovers this could be a main dish (just add sour cream of course!) and for the meat lovers this is a great side dish! Serving size is about 6-8 as a side dish.
