IntroductionSkip To The Recipe

It feels that every time I enter the kitchen to prepare dinner, my family requests pasta.

I have been in the mood for some eggplant and had wanted to prepare it with pasta. Perfect timing when their request came in.

This is my creation and it was so easy to prepare and the flavor was just out of this world. The bitterness of the eggplant was removed by removing the peel. And by having them in small pieces it saved time for the draining of the bitterness.

Be cautious not to overcrowd your large skillet when frying the eggplant as it has tendency to splatter.  Let the oil get hot again in between frying batches.

    My family also goes mad for pasta (thanks to my husband being Italian!), and so I’m always looking for new ideas. Eggplant and tomato go so well with pasta!
