Ingredient Brainstorm


Hmmmm...here's what came out of my last trip to the market. Any creative thoughts people?

-potatoes
-pears
-tomatoes
-lentils
-canellini beans
-kidney beans
-an eggplant
-lettuce
-canned san marzano tomatoes
-herby chipolata sausages
-basil

Judging by the colors represented here, it hasn't been the healthiest shopping I've ever done.

My only idea so far is a backward version of a bolognese....taking the sausages out of their casings, and using the meat as a kind of mince. Stir fried eggplants, sausage mince, canned tomatoes, loads of fresh basil, lots of Parmesan, over penne

I'm really in an eggplant mood, although I don't even think they re in season. 

Hmmm.....
