This is a super simple meal, packed with flavor, its in fact another meal I made right before leaving for our trip, it would also be perfect if you had limited ingredients on hand. I just adore roasted vegetables brings out a whole new flavor.





Ingredients:


  • one small eggplant sliced thinly and roasted with a little salt and pepper and olive oil for 20 minutes at 350 
  • any desired pasta 
  • one cup frozen peas
  • one tablespoon of pesto (I cheated and used Basil from the store, but its easy to make grind pine nuts with basil and parmesan)
  • 10 diced cherry tomatoes 
Method: 

  1. roast the eggplant 
  2. meanwhile boil the pasta till al dente 
  3. saute the peas and tomatoes in olive oil for 5 minutes 
  4. then add the eggplant and pesto and toss with pasta 
  5. voila a meal in a jiffy
