I love coming up with quick ways of using veggies. Sometimes we have a leftover veggie, a random one in our CSA, or we see some cheap “seconds” at the farmer’s market that I can’t resist. I created this recipe because we would always get one random eggplant in our CSA vegetable box!
So maybe you have had an eggplant like this one and wasn’t quite sure what to do with it.
Chop the eggplant into bite-size cubes (remember that they will shrink a little when cooked).
Saute in a pan with olive oil, and toss with salt. The eggplant will absorb a lot of oil. Cook until your desired texture.
Mix with marinara sauce. I prefer a plain marinara, so that there aren’t other flavors (like herbs or meat) competing with the flavor of the eggplant.
Toss with pasta and anything else you might like (cheese, etc).
This is such healthy pasta with Eggplant. I want to make this for the kids and me. Thanks for the fun recipe!
I never tried using eggplant like this. We love eggplant, I’m eager to try this!
I have some eggplant in the garden. It is always nice seeing it used. It really is a great vegetable. I think I would like his recipe.
I would love to try this healthy recipe! Looks so delicious!
This looks tasty & easy.
Thanks, now I know what we are having for dinner tonight. I have all the ingredients — even the slightly randomly damaged eggplant!
Do you ever slice and salt your eggplant and let it sit on a towel for 30 minutes or so to “sweat”? I can’t recall the reasoning (reduce bitterness maybe) but am not sure if it is needed for every recipe.
Well, my eggplant tuned out a bit mushy in the marinara sauce but it was DELICIOUS! Thank you for a very fine dinner! 🙂
I would love this. I like eggplant a whole lot. Marinara works so well with this vegetable. It looks delicious.
(Easy Eggplant Pasta) Sometimes when we go out to ear it is hard to find a place that has a good eggplant parm or pasta on the menu. I am keeping this recipe for myself here at home to make. It sounds wonderful to me.
What a clever, simple meal idea. Love this! I bet it would be good with some parmesan tossed on top, and/or some onion sauteed in, and/or some fresh basil leaves shredded and sprinkled on top…
I have never had eggplant before. this looks like a great pasta dish.
