What You'll Need:
  • 1 pound linguine
  • 2/3 cup olive oil, divided
  • 2 small eggplant (about 1 pound total), cut into 1/2-inch chunks (see Notes)
  • 1 tablespoon chopped garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 plum tomatoes, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
What To Do:
  1. In a large pot, cook linguine according to package directions and drain. Place linguine in a large bowl and toss with 2 tablespoons oil; set aside.
     
  2. In the same pot, heat remaining oil over medium-high heat. Saute eggplant 10 to 12 minutes, until lightly browned. Add garlic, oregano, salt, and pepper, and saute about 5 more minutes.
     
  3. Add tomatoes, parsley, and linguine, and toss gently until heated through. Serve immediately.
     
Notes
  • If you prefer, go ahead and peel the eggplant before cutting it into chunks.
     
  • A warm, crusty hunk of garlic bread sure is the perfect way to sop up the sauce that's left on your plate.

I wonder about adding left over chicken of beef?

Great recipe. I added onions, peppers and a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese. Even better.

We had a little fun in the Test Kitchen and turned your favorite banana bread upside-down! Our Upside-Down Banana Bread is great as-is or served with some vanilla ice cream. Just be warned, no matter how you decide to eat it, it'll be hard to stop at just one piece!
