From Martha Stewart

Serves 4

Ingredients

  • salt and pepper
  • 1/2 pound curly pasta, such as cavatappi
  • 1/4 cup olive oil, divided, plus more for grilling
  • 1 medium courgette, cut lengthwise into thick slices
  • 1 bell pepper, halved, stemmed, and seeded
  • 1 small red onion, halved
  • 1 small aubergine, cut lengthwise into thick slices
  • 4 large tomatoes, cut crosswise into thick slices
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons balsamic vinegar (preferably white)
  • 1/4 cup roughly chopped fresh parsley

Method

  1. In a medium pot of boiling salted water, cook pasta according to package instructions. Reserve 1 cup pasta water, then drain and return to pot.
  2. Heat a grill or grill pan to medium-high; clean and lightly oil hot grill. Working in batches if necessary, lightly brush vegetables with 2 tablespoons oil, season with salt and pepper, and grill, turning occasionally, until browned and tender. Transfer vegetables to a cutting board and let cool slightly.
  3. Roughly chop vegetables, then add to pasta, along with 2 tablespoons oil and vinegar to taste. If necessary, add pasta water to create a light sauce that coats pasta. Season with salt and pepper, sprinkle with parsley, and serve.
