Eggplant Pomodoro Pasta

July/August 2009

Your rating: None Average: 4 (297 votes)

Diced eggplant turns tender and tasty sautéed with garlic and olive oil. Toss with fresh plum tomatoes, green olives and capers and you have a simple light summer sauce. We like it over angel hair pasta, but any type of pasta will work.

"Love it - make it a day ahead, mix it with the pasta, and the next day the flavors have blended fabulously. I am making it as a spread for a luncheon tomorrow. Have made it numerous times, fedit to friends, and they have loved it, too. "

MMM Tasty!

I modified this recipe to add mushroom, fresh basil, fresh thyme and bell peppers. I also served it over spaghetti squash. Utterly amazing. I'll definitely be making this again--and I'm a carnivore!

Awesome flavors meld well together
"Where's the beef?"......Don't need it!

I did add about .5 cup of chopped onion, used 3 T olive oil and 3 cloves garlic. Added about 1 t of Italian Seasoning.
Wonderful as is, but a little parmesan makes it even better.

fast. healthy, delicious
spice it up

This recipe begs for you to add on and so I did. I proceeded to add shallots, mushrooms, fresh red chile pepper, quarter of a green and red bell pepper. Ohhh and I added grilled spicey Italian sausage too.

tastes even better the next day
It was ok..

I was really excited to make this dish, then disappointed on the out come. The vinegar overwhelms the dish in my opinion... I ended up adding tomato Sause. But its a good basic dish to where you can tweek it The way you like.

Healthy, easy to make
Not as good as the picture looks.

This could be tweaked to be made good, but at that point I wouldn't even call it the same recipe. I cook all the time with hardly a complaint, especially pasta dishes since my family is Italian. Too bad the dish didn't taste as good as the picture looked. The sauce was too dry to blend well with the pasta -had to add a good tablespoon extra olive oil at the end plus pesto for flavor- and the flavor was too vinegar-y. Overall, quite disappointed.

Made a good amount, tender vegetables
