Mix together the oil, lemon juice and garlic. Brush half the mixture on to the peppers, brinjal and the haloumi cheese, cut into 8 pieces. Heat a griddle pan and grill peppers and brinjal on both sides until tender, or cook under a hot grill. Set aside and grill the cheese until golden. Dish a serving of pasta on to each plate.
