EVELYN'S FAVORITE PASTA

Photobucket

Dont be surprised by the name of the dish......Its just one of the recipe that

caught my attention from the "Cheese Cake Factory's "Menu.It was a pleasant dinner


there on our Anniverssary .I really loved the flavor ,the roasted vegeables,those nutty

pines.......it was light and just perfect for the Occassion.We loved the dishes and

thought of going there again but it never worked out . So I made this at home by

bringing all the necessary ingredients.......So
here goes the recipe......


SERVES:2-3 people



INGREDIENTS:


Penne Rigate Pasta---------------1 to 1-1/2 cup



Eggplant--------------------------1 chopped

Broccoli---------------------------1 cup chopped

Pine nuts--------------------------1 tsp

Olive oil----------------------------5-6 tbp

Garlic pods-------------------------4-5

Salt---------------------------------as required

Parmesean cheese-----------------1/2 cup grated(optional)


DIRECTIONS:


1.Keep all the vegetables(eggplants,broccoli,bellpepper) freshly chopped and set aside for frying.

2.Measure 1 to 1-1/2 cup of pasta and throw them into hot boiling water.


3.Add very little salt,tsp oil and boil till the instructed time on the pasta packet.


4.Donot drain out the water immediately.Do it prior to mixing with the fried vegetables to avoid drying.


5.Heat Olive oil,add chopped garlic ,pine nuts,green peppers,eggplants .


6.Maintain the heat on medium-low and cook till the veggies are 1/4 th done for 4-5 mins.

7.Now add broccoli fry till done then drain out the pasta and add them to veggies along with some salt,basil leaves,sun -dried tomatoes and saute them for 5-6 mins.

I really like Evelyn's at the Cheesecake Factory. I made this tonight for dinner, to the point, but it's missing something. I'm not sure what, but it didn't come out as well as it tastes in the restaurant. :(
