Heat the oven to 220˚C/ 425˚F / Gas mark 7. Line a tray with nonstick baking paper. Toss the aubergines, onion, garlic and peppers with the olive oil. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Roast for 30 minutes or until the vegetables are tender. (This can be done a day ahead.) Add the tomatoes, sundried tomatoes, then season again.

Cook the pasta according to the packet instructions. Place the bread in a food processor and whizz together to make breadcrumbs. Add the cheese and process again to combine. When the roasted vegetables and pasta are cooked mix together. Transfer to an ovenware dish. Sprinkle the top with the cheese breadcrumbs. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until the top is brown. To serve the stylish way: Garnish with fresh mint and olives. Serve immediately.
