Pasta Alla Symi

We 'invented' this dish in Symi one evening and we've made it twice since. You could easily leave out the meat if needed.

Serves 4-6

250g of mince

2 medium aubergines cut into a small dice

2 courgettes cut into a small dice

2 garlic cloves smashed

pinch of chilli flakes

2 cans of chopped tomatoes

generous bunch of fresh dill roughly topped

1/2 pack of feta

Olive oil, salt & pepper

500g of rigatoni or other tube pasta

Heat generous amount of olive oil in a heavy bottomed frying pan and fry the vegetables in small batches until very golden and tender. Salt each batch as you put onto plate.

In a large saucepan, heat more olive oil, add garlic and chilli flakes for 20secs and then add mince, breaking it up and browning it. Once all browned add the 2 cans of chopped tomatoes, all the roasted vef, season well and cook gently for 15-20 mins.

Cook the pasta according to the packet instructions, drain and add to the sauce for a moment or two

Serve topped with crumbled feta and the chopped dill.
