• Preheat oven to 220°C/200°C fan-forced. Bring a medium saucepan of salted water to the boil. Finely chop garlic. Cut eggplant and courgette into small chunks. Slice red onion into wedges. • Place veggies and garlic & herb seasoning on a lined oven tray. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat and roast until tender, 20-25 minutes.
TIP: If your oven tray is crowded, divide between two trays.
• While the veggies are roasting, cook farfalle in the boiling water until 'al dente', 10 minutes. • Reserve some pasta water (1/4 cup for 2 people / 1/2 cup for 4 people), then drain pasta and return to pan. Drizzle with a little olive oil to prevent sticking.
TIP: 'Al dente' pasta is cooked through but still slightly firm in the centre.
• When veggies have 5 minutes cook time remaining, heat a large frying pan over a medium high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. • Cook garlic and tomato paste (see ingredients) until fragrant, 1 minute. Add tinned cherry tomatoes, baby spinach leaves, vegetable stock powder, brown sugar and reserved pasta water and cook until slightly reduced, 2-3 minutes. Season to taste. • Add cooked farfalle, roasted veggies and the butter, then crumble in 1/2 the cheese. Stir to combine.
TIP: Combine the pasta in the saucepan if your frying pan isn't big enough.
• Pick thyme leaves. • Divide Mediterranean roasted eggplant farfalle between bowls. • Crumble over remaining cheese. Garnish with thyme.
