    Umberle's Note:

    Pulled from an old issue of vegetarian times. I used to be pretty leary of eggplant, but this was enchanting. Good on its own; better with pasta or rice.

      This was delicious. I served it over a bowl of polenta, and it was the ultimate comfort-food meal. I'll be making this again and often.

      So delicious!!!!!! Ragouts are some of my favorite dishes, they have such depth of flavor and the veggies are usually the stars!!! I added a few things to enhance it even further for myself and for fun!!! First, I salted and removed the bitterness of the eggplant then roasted it using Roasted Eggplant for Pasta and Recipes , Roasted Eggplant for Pasta and Recipes,,that I really love the method and flavor of. This really sent the flavor of the eggplant into the stratosphere and lessened the time it needed to be in the skillet. I used fire-roasted tomatoes, threw in some chopped black olives and in place of parsley, I used arugula. This recipe is wonderful, it has great flavor, balance and you can tweak it with a few different veggies here and there that won't change the delicious outcome!!! Thanks so much for the recipe!!!

      I was going to post this and here it is. This is wonderful. Only change I made was I added crushed red peppers to the onions which spiced it up. We had it over rigatoni. It's good on it's own, but I would add a small can of tomato sacue if using over pasta. This is a keeper!
