This is a perfect meal to make midweek, just through some fresh tomatoes and aubergine in a baking dish with garlic and thyme, season and drizzle with oil and roast on low. Stir through some pasta of choice and serve with a dollop of homemade pesto (optional), green salad, and a sprinkle of fresh herbs. It's simple and tasty, with minimal fuss.
