Just when I thought I could not love pasta as much as I already do I discovered eggplant + tomato sauce. It is so creamy, filling, flavourful and fragrant, it suits perfect with Nathalie Sader’s Chevre Cheese (plant based), pine nuts, and basil.
The spices in this dish are to thank really as they bring out the natural sweetness and beauty of both the tomato and eggplant. If you have always been on the fence about eggplant then I am certain this dish will chance your perspective, forever!
It all starts with golden onions and garlic to give the sauce its gorgeous base. Then by simply adding spices, tomatoes, and eggplant you are in for a delicious treat.
This pasta dish takes 30 minutes to make, requiring only one pan (for sauce) and a high speed blender or food processor. Every ingredient in this dish provides a balance of fresh, sweet and savoury; its a must try!
You can add some extra flavour to this dish with nutritional yeast, lemon, sundried tomatoes or roasted peppers.
This pasta is:
satisfying and comforting
