ROASTED AUBERGINE & GOAT'S CHEESE PASTA

Added by: on Dec 15th, 2015
My daughter Arabella isn't a fussy eater but she detests aubergines - I just don't get it as I absolutely love them! Anyway as she was at her father's for the weekend, I decided it would be the perfect time to cook this pasta recipe. I had cooked it previously about 5 years ago so it .. more >

Directions:

1

Preheat the oven to 220 C / gas mark 7.

2

Chop the aubergine, onion and garlic and shred the basil. Arrange the aubergine and onion in a small roasting tin. Scatter over the garlic, basil and olive oil and season. Roast for 20 - 25 minutes, stirring once or twice until tender and charred.

3

While the vegetables are cooking, bring a large pan of salted water to the boil and cook the pasta according to the packet's instructions - mine took 8 minutes.

4

Drain and mix together with the roasted vegetables, goat's cheese and toasted pine nuts. I actually forgot to toast the pine nuts but it didn't matter. Normally I would dry fry them for 3-4 minutes.

5

Serve immediately with some basil leaves and more seasoning if you desire.

6

I can't believe that I haven't cooked this recipe for 5 years! It is so delicious and so simple to make plus to you don't need to many ingredients. A perfect midweek supper idea….I just need to now convince Arabella she likes aubergines too, luckily she is already sold on the goat's cheese!

Sorry for the lack of blog posts but I haven't cooked or been anywhere new in ages. I was so busy with the end of term and then Pascal and I escaped to the sun for a week, we ate, swam, sunbathed and read - it was blissful. But it is back to reality now!! As Arabella is with her father we decided to cook a pasta dish which she wouldn't like - something with aubergines. This is a ..
