Directions

  1. In a bowl combine basil, feta cheese, pine nuts, garlic, jalapeno pepper, and lemon peel. Set aside.
  2. Prepare spaghetti according to package directions. Drain. Toss pasta with olive oil, lemon juice, and salt. Cover and keep warm.
  3. Meanwhile, prepare vegetables. If using leeks, trim root end and tough green leaves; halve leeks lengthwise and wash thoroughly. If using onions, cut into 3/4-inch slices. If using eggplant, peel if desired, and cut into 3/4-inch slices. If using zucchini, halve lengthwise. Brush vegetables with olive oil or cooking oil.
  4. Heat a nonstick or well-seasoned grill pan on stovetop over medium heat until hot. Add half the eggplant, onions, and tomatoes to grill pan; grill about 5 minutes per side or until brown and tender. Repeat with remaining vegetables.
  5. Cut vegetables into bite-size chunks. On a large platter swirl pasta with a fork to make a large nest, or divide pasta among 4 plates. Transfer vegetable mixture from cutting board to pasta nests. Sprinkle feta mixture over all. Makes 4 servings.

From the Test Kitchen

For tabletop grill:

Preheat grill according to manufacturers directions. Grill leeks or onions, eggplant, and tomato slices on grill until eggplant and onion are tender and tomato is heated through. If using a covered grill, close lid. For covered grill, allow 5 to 6 minutes for leeks, 4 to 5 minutes for eggplant and onion, and 2 to 3 minutes for tomatoes. (For open grill, allow 12 to 14 minutes for leeks, 8 to 10 minutes for eggplant, and 4 to 5 minutes for tomatoes, turning once.)
