Description:

Serves 4
Perciatelli is a long, tubular pasta; spaghetti may be substituted.
 
 
1medium eggplant(1 pound), cut into 1/2-inch dice
 
2tablespoons olive oil
 
3/4teaspoon salt, plus more for pasta water
 
1/2teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
 
8plum tomatoes(about 1 1/4 pounds), cored and quartered lengthwise
 
1pound cherry tomatoes, stems removed
 
6cloves garlic, unpeeled
 
2red bell peppers
 
2yellow bell peppers
 
2tablespoons red-wine vinegar
 
1/4teaspoon cayenne pepper
 
1pound perciatelli
 
1cup loosely packed fresh basil leaves
 
1ounce Parmesan cheese, for garnish (optional)
 
 1.   Preheat oven to 400°. In a medium bowl, combine eggplant, 1 tablespoon oil, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/8 teaspoon pepper; toss to combine. Transfer to a baking pan in a single layer. Place all tomatoes and garlic cloves in a second pan. Transfer both pans to oven. Roast eggplant until brown and tender, about 40 minutes; roast garlic and tomatoes until garlic is soft and tomatoes are shriveled, about 30 minutes. When cool enough to handle, squeeze soft garlic from cloves.
 
 2.   Meanwhile, place peppers over a gas burner with a high flame; roast until charred on all sides, turning as needed, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a metal bowl; cover with plastic wrap for 20 minutes. Using a paper towel, rub charred skin off peppers. Remove and discard seeds and stems. Place 1 red and 1 yellow pepper, and any liquid collected in bowl, in the bowl of a food processor. Add roasted garlic, plum tomatoes, vinegar, cayenne, remaining tablespoon olive oil, and remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt and 3/8 teaspoon pepper; process until smooth. Cut remaining peppers into 1/4-inch-thick strips; set aside
 
 3.   Fill a large stockpot with salted water; bring to a boil. Place pasta in water; boil until pasta is al dente, about 11 minutes. Drain in a colander; transfer to a serving bowl. Pour purée over pasta; toss to combine. Add basil, roasted eggplant, cherry tomatoes, and reserved pepper strips; toss. Serve garnished with grated Parmesan cheese, if desired.

Why is the fiber lower than what the nutritional information says?
Weight Watchers modified the point system plan, where you can only count 4 grams of fiber for any food item, and the rest is ignored.  This modification was because people were abusing it and eating high fiber foods in order to make the points seem lower.
