Very tasty, I would use less pasta next time though. Otherwise, a good quick meal!

I like this very much. I don't add the sugar and sometimes roast the tomatoes and aubergine. Whichever way I do it, it always works.

I like the sound of roasting the tomatoes and aubergines. What do you do? Do you put them in the oven together with season and a bit of oil? At about 375 degrees for about 20 mins? Or is that a hopeless guess. Would love to know more about this tip, if you don't mind. Best, Lesley
