Vegetarian Pasta

Last week I tried another recipe. 

Well not really a recipe but kind of a concoction. 

I started by cubing 1 eggplant, tossing with olive oil, salt and pepper and roasting for 15 minutes at 450 degrees. Every 5 minutes I re-tossed to make sure none stuck and/or burned.

Meanwhile I heated a large skillet with 2 cloves of garlic and about 2 tablespoons of olive oil.

Then I added 1 chopped onion and 1 chopped bell pepper.

After about 10 minutes I turned down the heat and let it all simmer.

Why not add some broccoli florets with some halved cherry tomatoes and let all that sizzle down?

(Just a check on the eggplant)

 Per a recipe I saw, I added 1/4 cup of part skim ricotta cheese, finely chopped basil and some freshly shredded Parmesan. 

Oh yea, I was boiling spinach fettuccine...

When the noodles were ready I added them and all the vegetables together. 

A bit of pasta water and some mo' cheese.

Yum baby Yum.
