grilled veggie penne

We had some asparagus and eggplant that needed to be used up so I grilled them on our grill pan. I also re-hydrated sun dried tomatoes in boiling water and once reconstituted, covered them in olive oil to stay moist. I boiled up some penne rigate and sauteed several cloves a garlic in olive oil. I added the penne, grilled asparagus & eggplant, sun dried tomatoes and fresh parsley to the sauteed garlic. Sea salt, black pepper and cayenne pepper was also added. The dish was topped with pine nuts I toasted. Pretty good way to use up veggies.

Thanks! I got that plate (actually a bowl!) at a thrift store many years ago. Good place to find cool single dishes for pics at a very cheap price.
