STOP !!! Seriously – Don’t throw away that last glass of expensive wine after a delicious meal with friends/family as no-one is ready to have that last glass as everyone is too full.

Now, this Broccoli Eggplant Pasta in White Wine Sauce recipe can also be called one pot (if you have cooked pasta on hands) and for lazy days too…especially a Saturday brunch which sounds so exciting but who wants to get up early and cook!
That’s when this recipe comes handy and cooks under 20 mins. Both broccoli and eggplant have a light taste and they compliment the white wine sauce beautifully.
You can make the sauce thicker or lighter as per taste and add extra cheese if need be. * Just remember to use wine in room temperature as you don’t want to pour chilled wine in extra hot veggies, it will spoil the taste of your entire dish.
