I had to roast the veggies for about 35 minutes to get some color on them. The eggplant really cooked down, so the next time I make this, I will cut a little larger than 1/2" cubes (ragu needs some substance). Also, do yourself a favor and use a 12" skillet. I ended up having to brown the sausage in two batches, and by the time I added the sauce ingredients, the 10" skillet was full (and I slopped sauce all over the stove stirring it). Be sure to use a decent pasta sauce and red wine, as I think this is key to the rich flavor of the sauce. The fresh veggies really shine in this recipe. Served this over penne, the chicken sausage was really tasty, and the sun dried tomato added another layer of flavor to this recipe. Enjoyed this, and I definitely will make it again. All in all, a pretty heart-healthy meal.
