Half term recipes with the kids to sneak in some veg

I just thought I would post some quick recipes for half term to try and sneak in some veg. I have got good at that since my daughter won't eat anything green, or orange for that matter. In fact she only eats white food, bread, pasta, cheese with the occasional red, ie pizza. The next person who asks me if me and my husband eat veg and fruit (I love my fruit and veg) I will reply 'veg? What's that?"

Pasta all norma Sicilian aubergine pasta for 4
400 g pasta
2 aubergines
1 kilo of tomatoes
1 garlic clove
basil
ricotta
olive oil

Blanche the aubergines to get rid of salt. Roast them in the oven for 20 mins
heat the oil and fry the garlic, add the tomatoes and basil
Cook the pasta until al dente
Put the aubergines in with the tomatoes for just a few minutes , mix together with the pasta and add a sprinkle of ricotta and olive oil.
Buon appetito
