Roasting vegetables at a high temperature caramelizes them, making them intensely flavorful. You may think of roasting as a long process, but we cut each of the vegetables into small cubes or thin slices so they need only thirty minutes in the oven.
RECIPE INGREDIENTS
1 eggplant (about 1 1/4 pounds), cut into 1/2-inch cubes
2 zucchini, quartered lengthwise and then cut crosswise into 1/2-inch pieces
1 large red onion, quartered and cut into 1/4-inch slices
4 tablespoons olive oil
3/4 pound plum tomatoes (about 6), quartered
1 1/4 teaspoons salt
3/4 pound ziti
2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil or parsley
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1/4 teaspoon fresh-ground black pepper

DIRECTIONS
Heat the oven to 450 degrees F. In a large bowl, toss the eggplant, zucchini, and red onion with 2 tablespoons of the oil. Spread in a single layer on one large or two smaller baking sheets, preferably nonstick. Roast, stirring occasionally, until well browned and tender, about 30 minutes.


Meanwhile, place the tomatoes cut-side up in a small baking dish and sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon of the salt. Roast until soft, about 20 minutes. Transfer to a food processor or blender and puree.


In a large pot of boiling, salted water, cook the ziti until just done, about 12 minutes. Drain the pasta and toss with the tomato puree, the roasted vegetables, the basil, the remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil, the vinegar, the remaining 1 teaspoon salt, and the pepper.
