  • 1 large eggplant, cut into 2.5cm pieces
  • 2 large zucchini, thickly sliced
  • 1 red capsicum, halved, thickly sliced
  • olive oil cooking spray
  • 8 small chicken drumsticks, skin removed
  • 2 cups Italian tomato pasta sauce
  • 1/3 cup dried risoni pasta

Method to prepare

  1. Preheat oven to 240°C. Place eggplant, zucchini and capsicum in a large roasting pan. Spray vegetables with oil. Roast for 25 to 30 minutes or until light golden.
  2. Meanwhile, heat a heavy-based saucepan over high heat. Spray with oil. Cook drumsticks in batches, turning occasionally, for 5 minutes or until light golden. Return all chicken to saucepan. Add pasta sauce. Reduce heat to medium-low. Cover and simmer for 10 minutes. Stir in risoni. Cook, covered, for a further 10 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.
