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.

  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.

  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!

  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!
