A really tasty salad

Hi everyone. So, this is what we've been eating in my household for the last couple of days. I made a big batch of it because it's a busy week, and cooking isn't at the top of my list (despite last night's souffle foray).

This salad is quite yummy, easy to throw together after a day of writing and baby wrangling --and it's healthy too. You know the drill, I'm too tired to give you a real recipe, so here is the "this and that" version:

Roasted Eggplant, Chickpea and Penne Salad

*Two cans of chickpeas, rinsed and drained
*Cherry tomatoes, halved (you decide how many you'd like)
*Several cloves of garlic, minced
*Two eggplants, sliced into 1/2-inch strips and roasted in the oven with a bit of olive oil and salt (then cut up in bite sized pieces)
*A bit of minced Italian parsley
*A package of whole wheat penne, cooked to al dente
*A squeeze of lemon, and some zest
*A drizzle of olive oil
*A sprinkle of crushed red pepper
*Coarse salt and pepper to taste

Throw it all together and toss in a large bowl. Yup, that simple. Enjoy!
