Smokey Creamy BBQ Aubergine Pasta

Smokey Creamy BBQ Aubergine Pasta

It’s been a bit of a crazy couple of weeks between two days of funeral services for my dear guardian, then a weekend away for a wedding a day later, then the next day flying over to Portugal early in the morning. We arrived home on Tuesday, after an awfully long and uncomfortable journey full of delays and still don’t feel rested.

But, to keep things feeling as normal as possible I’m going to share with you an amazing recipe for a Smoky Creamy BBQ Aubergine Pasta, inspired by August’s Degustabox. Each month I receive a box chock full of goodies, from ingredients to convenient sauces and beverages to try, all for a bargain price.

This month had a fine balance of all, here’s the vegan friendly products it included;

The star of the month and of this recipe was the Tabasco Sweet & Sticky Barbecue Sauce & Marinade. It adds richness, smokiness, subtle sweetness and gentle spice that makes this comforting pasta, out-of-this world delicious! Plus, the sauce comes together in a flash using a high speed blender. You could also try using a food processor.
