1/1 Photo of Buca Di Beppo Rigatoni Positano (Copycat)
When I tried this dish at Buca, I instantly fell in love with it. I was able to find the recipe elsewhere, and thought I should share it! It is fabulous! (I usually leave the peel on the eggplant, and chop it into one-inch cubes; but this can also be prepared with eggplant slices) If you don't have time to make Marinara, you can just a jarred sauce like Paul Newman's.
