Noodle Pasta w/ Eggplant & Tomato

I got home late the other night, hungry and wanting pasta. There was a slight problem though, we had no spaghetti or fettuccine. We did, however, have soba noodles, the sort used in Asian soups. I decided to give it a go.

But what to put on the pasta?

Grilled eggplant – the night before my housemate had grilled some eggplant (check out Gilled Eggplant to find out how to make your own)

Cherry tomatoes – there was a punnet of questionable cherry tomatoes lurky in my fridge

Goat cheese – a few nights earlier I had friends over for cheese and nibbles and some ash goat cheese remained

Sunflower seeds – these are tasty and add a different texture to the dish

Chop the eggplant and halve the cherry tomatoes. Heat in a frypan with the sunflower seeds.

01 sauce In a pot bring the noodles to the boil, they will only take a couple of minutes.

noodlesOnce the noodles are cooked, drain them and add to the fry pan. Stir the ingredients, add the goat cheese and serve.

Outcome: If you like angel hair you will like noodle pasta. If, like me, you think angel hair pasta is very over-rated, you will wish you had spaghetti or fettuccine.
