Roasting is a simple cooking technique that gives vegetables a caramelized exterior and a lovely tender bite. Mediterranean vegetables include zucchini, eggplant and capsicum. You can add more colour by using red, green and yellow capsicums.
This recipe also includes chargrilled artichokes, which add a tangy, slightly smoky flavour to the pasta sauce. You can buy chargrilled artichokes in the deli section at most supermarkets or markets.
Another key ingredient is fresh parsley, which brings out the flavour, balances the dish, and makes an attractive garnish. Fresh basil and oregano leaves also add some Mediterranean flair.
