Italian aubergine, mushroom and tomato recipe

Holly-cooks-Italian-aubergine-mushroom-and-tomatoes800webThis aubergine, mushroom and tomato is a great supper, ideal when you need to eat in the next half an hour but want something fresh and easy. I serve it with pasta or sundried tomato and pumpkin seed polenta. I didn’t add parmesan but you absolutely could and also bacon if you need meat.

  1. This is fantastically tasty! I was after a quick recipe for a bring and share supper (cold dishes only!), that was to be prepared with two kids running round my legs. This fitted the bill perfectly. The bright colours and rough chopping even got the kids involved. I went with lemony green pesto to add a bit of sunshine on a rainy day. Super simple, super lovely. Thanks Holly.

    1. I love the image of you cooking with the kids running around. Lemony green pesto sounds like a great piece of sunshine on a dreary day!
