aubergine pricked and baked til mushy, then scraped of skin, gently spiced and stewed with tomato and onions and served over pasta. We3 usually have the aubergine thing room temp as a salad, but need warmth tonight, so I figure it will work over pasta and hot.

I have several thick slices of Tuesday's pork roast left over. Reheat in a silverstone pan with a lid and a bit of broth for steam, add veggies aound the meat after the flip, top with the gravy...should be good. Third night I'll do it with fennel flavored pasta sauce and serve over penne. I wasn't crazy to get such a big hunk of meat.

I do something very similar, then buzz it in the blender with some evoo, grilled onion and garlic with some spices (depends on my mood, a bit of cardamom, curry, paprika tiny pinch of cayenne etc.). Delicious over pasta, polenta or pureed potatoes, or as a condiment for stuffed vegs. I also do pretty much the same thing with mushrooms, bell peppers and artichokes (with artichokes, pressure cooked then ground through "passaverdure", evoo, garlic, lemon juice and parsley). They also freeze well like pesto, make a lifesaver dinner rescue idea when you are in no mood (or have no time) for cooking!

Aidan just told me he wants chocolate rice casserole for dinner

He says you just put some chocolate in there and some cheese.

I don't have a clue what we'll really be having. I feel like noodles. What I'd like is some thai food.

I feel braver about my dish being over pasta now, thanks! Yes, I put in a lot of garlic and some cumin too!
