A quick and easy pasta dish that is light and healthy!


Ingredients (serves 4)

  • 500g fresh tagliatelle pasta (My batch in the photo was made with the Philips Pasta & Noodle Maker
  • 4 large red capsicums
  • 1 large eggplant
  • 1 cup black olives (whole or sliced)
  • 1/4 cup capers
  • 1/2 red onion diced
  • 1/2 cup fresh parsley chopped
  • 2 tbs olive oil (for frying eggplant)
  • 2 tbs extra virgin olive oil for dressing

Method

  1. Dry roast capsicums in a hot oven (250 degrees Celsius) until skins start to blacken. Let capsicums cool completely. Remove skins and seeds and slice into strips lengthways.
  2. Slice eggplant into slices about 5 – 8 mm. Season slices with olive oil, mixed herbs, salt & pepper. Pan fry lightly in olive oil till golden on both sides.
  3. Combine eggplant with capsicum, olives, capers, diced red onion, a good glug of extra virgin olive oil and salt & pepper.
  4. Cook pasta as per instructions (see my tips below)
  5. Add cooked tagliatelle to roasted capsicum & eggplant combination. Season well with salt and pepper and dress with extra virgin olive oil. Garnish with parsley.

Notes

TIPS FOR COOKING PASTA - You should allow 1 litre of water for 100g of pasta. So 5 litres for 500gs - Add salt to your water. - You do not need to add oil to water!!! Having sufficient water will prevent pasta from sticking together. - NEVER rinse your pasta after cooking. It destroys the texture and eliminates the starch which helps the sauce to stick.

  • Traditional flavours that are still favourites, especially love eggplant and red capsicum with pasta, and saltiness of olives.

  • I’m always on the lookout for new pasta recipes. I loooove this one (except the olives), but know that my family won’t love it. Boo hoo! I should make it for myself.
