Aubergine, garlic and pasta are simmered in a simple tomato sauce in this easy vegetarian pasta dish that's perfect for a weeknight meal. Add fresh basil and plenty of black pepper if you like.
I received several small eggplants from my daughter's garden, but what to do with them? Allrecipes to the rescue! This sounded the easiest, so I made it! Absolutely a winner! I used whole grain pasta, added a half onion in the sauté of garlic. I could only find Hunts Italian diced tomatoes so I used that. Let me tell you, this was superb. Very light tasting! Not heavy like some pasta dishes can get. My father-in-law and husband had second and third helpings! I gave a container to my vegetarian granddaughter and she loved it too! I will definitely make this again. - 20 Aug 2015 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This recipe is very plain. There isn't any seasoning at all. I added extra garlic, fresh basil, salt and pepper to boost the flavor. I also added about 8 ounces of quartered mushrooms along with some tomato sauce. Next time I make this dish I think I'll try roasting the veggies for an even bigger boost of flavor. - 19 Sep 2015 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
