Penne with Tomato Sauce and Grilled Vegetables

Grilling retains more nutrients. When you cook your vegetables, some of the vitamins and minerals leak out. This happens a lot when you boil your vegetables. Some studies have found that sautéing or frying them won’t cause you to lose as many nutrients, but it does add on unhealthy fats. Grilling, on the other hand, doesn’t require you to use fats to cook your food.
