Northern Italian Pasta and Eggplant

30 Min

Make a double batch of our Northern Italian Pasta and Eggplant 'cause it's even better the second day!

What You'll Need

  • 8 ounces penne pasta
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 1 small unpeeled eggplant, coarsely chopped (about 3 cups)
  • 3 unpeeled ripe tomatoes, cubed
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

What to Do

  1. Cook pasta according to package directions; drain, set aside, and keep warm.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Stir in oregano then add eggplant and tomatoes, and cook 3 to 4 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in parsley, garlic powder, sugar, salt, and peppers.
  3. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and cook 10 minutes.
  4. Pour tomato mixture over cooked pasta, and toss with Parmesan cheese. Serve immediately.


If you'd like, make the sauce a few days before planning to use it. Store, covered, in the refrigerator. Then, when you're ready, you just have to heat it and serve it over cooked pasta.
