Pasta with Roasted Vegetables

Since I have been to Little Italy, I’ve been inspired to experiments with vegetarian dishes. I came to understand one of the most important parts of exploring new dishes and going for tasting. I would never think of cherish the wholesome roasted eggplants with lots of garlic and olives oil if it wasn’t for a new vegetarian pasta dish I have recently indulged outside my kitchen. I would never figure out the way to use herbs so generously yet not overpowering the dish if I didn’t notice how the flavors in different dishes playout at the tasting tables.

This morning, I peeled some eggplants, sliced and placed them on a baking tray. I crushed some garlic, tore some asparagus, diced and sliced some veggies and threw them in the same tray, then drizzled some olive oil and threw in some thyme, rosemary, a little sage and oregano… if I had some mushroom, I would add them too.

While I baked them in the oven, my kitchen smelled cozy. I cooked some pasta and made some lemonade while waiting for them to turn cook. By the time, the vegetable were baked to perfection, I whipped the dish up in less than a minute. How simple is that? And yes, it’s everything I was hoping for.
