For the Eggplant

1. Using a fork, prick the eggplants all around and place them straight onto an open flame, 15 minutes per side, until completely blackened.
2. Scrape into a large bowl, allowing a little bit of the black bits to get mixed in.

Assemble the Salad

1. Prepare a large skillet on high heat. Add 3 tablespoons of olive oil and get hot. Add the tomatoes and chili pepper and cook for 6 minutes, mixing periodically.
2. Add the garlic and cook for 2 more minutes. Add the spinach and cook for 1 more minute.
3. Once cooled, add pasta, remaining olive oil, salt, lemon, silan, mint and basil and another drizzle of olive oil and salt if needed.
4. Mix and serve warm or room temperature.


I used whole wheat pasta but feel free to use regular pasta and any shape that you love most!
