Eggplant w/ Ziti Pasta

Thursday's Treat!!!

I hope you guys didn't think I was too busy to share something yummy lol.
I hope you have been enjoying my September Challenge shares and my Tuesday guest hosting duties on Turn It Up Tuesdays.

My love for Eggplant lives on...

- 1 large Eggplant
- pasta
- favorite pasta sauce
- grape tomatoes
- salt
- 6 small sweet peppers
- olive oil
- parsley
- Parmesan cheese
- black pepper

Use 2 tbsps of olive oil in a large skillet on med heat add the peppers cook for 3 minutes. Add the Eggplant cubes, the sliced grape tomatoes and the sauce cook for 20 minutes or until Eggplant is tender.

As the Eggplant is cooking 10 minutes in begin to boil and prep your pasta. I used 2 cups of Ziti this time around because that's what I had in my pantry but you can use Penne or Angel hair or Linguine. I would dare say just about any type of pasta you like because I just don't like to follow many rules lol. I made enough for dinner and leftovers.

After 20 minutes and Eggplant is tender remove from heat, sprinkle pinch of black pepper, some parsley (to your liking) and set aside.
In a large bowl I mixed the pasta and Eggplant and was ready to serve. The bowl will be on double duty as my leftover saver and I can wash the skillet once cooled.

I sprinkled some Parmesan cheese as an added flavor kick and done.
Start to finish about 30 minutes.
Another great quick what do I have in the kitchen for dinner tonight.
Yummy, tasty and very little fuss

Always stress free xo

It's not a Party without...
