1. Set oven to 220ºC.
Bring a saucepan of water to the boil, add pasta and cook according to packet instructions. Drain, reserving 1 cup pasta water and rinse briefly, reserve saucepan (see step 5).

2. Slice eggplants, cut squash into wedges and halve cherry tomatoes. Toss with 1 tbsp oil, salt and pepper on a lined oven tray. Roast for 20 minutes.

3. Chop basil (leaves) and grate parmesan.
Add almond mix, 1 tbsp olive oil, salt and pepper to a large, dry frypan. Toast until golden over medium heat. Set aside in a bowl and add half the basil and the grated parmesan.

4. Reheat the frypan. Rub fish fillets with oil, salt and pepper. Cook for 3 minutes on each side, or until cooked through. Set aside on a chopping board.

5. Trim, rinse and chop English spinach.
Add 1/2 cup reserved pasta water to saucepan and add spinach and pesto. Cook for 2-3 minutes, toss in pasta, roasted vegetables and remaining basil. Heat through and season with salt and pepper to taste (see notes).

6. Break fish fillets into pieces.
Divide pasta and vegetables between plates, top with fish and scatter over pangrattato to serve.

Notes:
Stir in 1/2-1 tbsp balsamic vinegar to pasta if you like.
