10 mins to prep

30 mins to cook

  1. Step 1

    Preheat the oven to 180°C.

  2. Step 2

    Toss the eggplant with olive oil and spread on one side of a baking tray. Toss the capsicum with oil and spread on the other side of a baking tray. Bake for 20-30 minutes or until everything is tender. You may need to take the capsicum out first (before it chars) and leave the eggplant in a bit longer to go super soft, so check both separately. Set aside.

  3. Step 3

    Boil a large pot of water and cook the pasta according to its packet instructions. Drain and set aside.

  4. Step 4

    In the same pot, sauté the oil and onion over high heat for 2 minutes or until the onion is slightly softened. Add the garlic and sauté for another minute.

  5. Step 5

    Add the capsicum, stock and tahini to the pot. Use a stick blender or stand blender to puree the mixture until smooth. Season with salt and pepper.

  6. Step 6

    Stir through the pasta and roasted eggplant and heat through.

  7. Step 7

    Divide the pasta onto 4 dishes, top with vegan parmesan if using, and enjoy while hot!
