Eggplant and Tomato Sauce

When you are in the mood for a vegetarian meal, this is a nice quick weekday dish. I like to use extra virgin olive oil, it gives this sauce a nice flavor. Top with good grated cheese and enjoy over high finer or whole wheat pasta.

In a large deep frying pan, saute garlic in olive oil. Add eggplant and saute about 2-3 minutes. Coarsely chop tomatoes and add to the pan. Season with salt and pepper and simmer, uncovered about 15-20 minutes. Add fresh chopped herbs and toss with pasta (extra points).

  3. This was amazing! Instead of using pasta, I tossed in some shrimp at the very end and then served this alongside some fresh steamed carrots.

  4. making this right now.. looks delicious. can't wait to try :) thanks gina!

  5. delicious, healthy, and EASY :)

  6. I've got some eggplant fresh from our garden. I was looking for a healthy recipe & will make this tonight!

  7. This looks so good! I have an eggplant I desperately need to use. I think I'm going to try this but instead of putting over pasta put it over some ground turkey meatballs!

  8. do you peel the eggplant first?

  9. Hi Gina, I live in Mexico and I haven't seen Tuttorosso products here yet. I also prefer doing sauces from scratch, I think its healthier :) Do you have any tips on how to make this type of sauce?

    Thanks a lot, I'm a big fan!

  10. Made this for dinner tonight & it was amazing! I had some leftover Gina marinera sauce & added a can of diced fire roasted tomatoes with fresh sliced mushrooms. Thanks again Gina!!! Love you!
