olive oil, or more if needed
salt and pepper to taste

tomato sauce, or more if needed
chopped fresh basil
Great recipe! I used 1/2 an eggplant, and also 1/2 a zucchini, the two were great together. Instead of tomato paste, i used 1 cup of tomato/basil sauce (jar) with a bit of cream which I blended together. Overall, a very easy and delicious recipe!
Since it's August, I substituted fresh tomatoes from the garden. I diced the eggplant into 3/4" cubes, and it went over well with the family. I also added a medium onion to give it a bit of added texture.
pretty good, the recipe is vague on what size the "small pieces" of eggplant should be, the sauce is kind of bland, and tastes strongly of plain tomato sauce, but it was fast and used what we had on hand! next time i think i'll add some brown sugar and cayenne pepper to compensate for the tomato sauce flavour.
Very easy for my first time cooking eggplant. I cut up the eggplant fairly small and though and it still took over 14 min to seem fully cooked.
Really yummy. I ended up making it a little different, but used this as my base recipe and it was really good. I just used jarred tomato basil sauce and diced sun dried tomatoes because that's what I had. Also added onion and zucchini. Delish!
Wonderful, quick, all the ingredients normally on hand. I did add 12 ounces of ground beef sauteed before adding the eggplant and garlic. Also used leftover brown rice instead of the pasta.
Fixed this tonight. I did not have any sundries tomato paste so I substituted fresh tomatoes. It was great.
We'll go back and make variations on this one! We used a jarred marinara sauce instead of the tomato called for, and added mushrooms. The end result was wonderful, especially topped with Parmesan.
