Eggplant Pomodoro Pasta

July/August 2009

Your rating: None Average: 4 (246 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.



READER'S COMMENT:
"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. "

When trying this for the first time, I did not like it at all. All the flavors were interesting and came together except for two ingredients. Using the green olives and capers here added undesirable flavors. While I like these two ingredients in other recipes, they just didn’t fit here very well. The green olives added a bitter flavor which was a distraction. Adding the capers on top of that was overkill.
When I made a few tweaks, it majorly changed the flavors and became delicious to me. First, I totally removed the green olives and capers. I replaced them with pitted and sliced Kalamata olives to taste. I felt that this type of olive worked with these ingredients better. The pasta portion is way out of control here. The excessive amount diluted the flavor from the eggplant/ tomato mix causing blandness. At most, I would only use ¾ the amount in the package. I loved the flavor from the red wine vinegar! Basil here resulted in a nice rhythm taste wise. Very interesting and healthy recipe. Thanks :)

This was easy and delicious. Would probably even convert anti-eggplant people. Next time I'm going to add mushrooms.

So Healthy!

I am trying to eliminate certain foods from my diet such as sugar, gluten, soy and dairy. I made this dish tonight for the first time but substituted quinoa gluten-free pasta for angel hair. It was wonderful and filled me up! I didn't miss the cheese or the bread that I would normally have with this type-dish. Thank you for this recipe! Next time, I will throw some pine nuts on top! :)

Quick and inexpensive!
