Roasted Eggplant & Tomato Bolognese with Black Pepper Fettuccine

Sometimes it can be tough to use up all the fruits and veggies you buy each week without any of them going bad! However, with a little creativity in the kitchen, you can turn a spotty tomato into a nourishing and delicious meal!
Waited a little too long to use those vine ripe tomatoes? It happens to the best of us. Eggplant getting spotty? There’s still an opportunity to salvage that’s super easy and delicious: Roasted Eggplant & Tomato Bolognese!
1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Remove any black or brown spots from your veggies. Chop into cubes or wedges and season liberally with salt, pepper, olive oil and any other dry herbs you may have in your pantry like basil or thyme.
2. Spread veggies onto sheet trays and roast for about 30-45 minutes. Make sure you get some nice char/caramelization on there! From there, just puree everything together and warm back up in a saucepot. Add about 1-2 cups of water and adjust seasoning to taste.
4. Cook fresh Bombolini Black Pepper Fettucine!
5. Serve all together and top with fresh Parmesan Cheese!
