Eggplant Pasta Sauce or Side Dish

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by TendrMoon

Have been making this for years and years. It's good served over pasta, as a side dish, or as a stand alone with a salad and some good bread. Have made it with the mushrooms and without. Good either way. Freezes very well.

Very good and light. We used this to top our homemade linguine. Felt it was missing something so added about 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar and the reult was fantastic!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Saute' onion, garlic and eggplant in oil for five minutes. Add all other ingredients (including reserved liquid from tomatoes) and bring to a boil. Lower heat and simmer for 30 minutes*.
  2. *I always cover and cook this longer (an hour or more until it tastes right to me) as I don't care for raw tasting tomatoes. When it's almost done, I uncover and cook a little longer so it thickens a bit. Again, just a personal preference.
  3. Serve with freshly grated parmesan cheese.
