:: pasta with roasted eggplant, summer squash, and tomatoes ::

i almost called this post
:: pasta with roasted fruit ::
because eggplant, squash, & tomatoes
are all fruits, you know.

because we are the lucky members
of an amazing csa farmwe have been
enjoying copious quantities of said fruits.
this dish has been a really delicious result.

my kids thought they didn't like eggplant
until i came up with this one.

with roasted eggplant, 
summer squash, and tomatoes

coarsely chop eggplant, squash, & tomatoes
{i like to peel the eggplant first}
add some coarsely chopped onions & garlic.
generously coat with olive oil, salt & pepper
and spread onto baking sheets.
roast in a 350° oven for about an hour,
or until everything looks like this

cook 1 pound of pasta per package directions
{i like to use something sturdy, like penne}
then combine with roasted goodness
and add loads of freshly grated parmesan.

at this point, you can just dig in,
or you can
pour into a buttered casserole
and bake a bit more.
{keep a cover on it when baking}

{note: i froze the extra roasted goodness
for future meals}

serve with a salad and a baguette
