A nice and fresh meal of pasta, quick to throw together and very light (no sauce). Also tastes warm and spicy (if you're a bit on the spicier side of life, like me, you'll enjoy it).
This dish proves that with the proper seasoning and pairing, even the most calorie-poor and boring sounding dish can become very satisfying. :) The pasta is orange-colored and it contains 25% carrot and pumpkin, the eggplant and aubergine are gently fried with spices (the coriander is the key) and the whole thing gets a fresh touch from the parsley added at the end. Enjoy! :)
