      Very nice. I also skipped the butter and cut down on the oil. I halved the recipe and made it in a large non-stick skillet which worked well. Perciatelli, which I had never tried before, is a lot like spaghetti pasta but much thicker. It made the recipe hard to eat neatly, but I thought the shape went well with the veggies. I thought my eggplant could have been cooked longer, so I suggest you do that, but otherwise everything worked out fine. I used organic fire-roasted crushed tomatoes and like Rita I served with grated cheese too. Thanks for a wonderful dinner! My BF wanted me to say he enjoyed this too.

      Very fresh! I did skip the butter. Used my Oven Dryed Hot Peppers-Flakes or Powder Oven Dried Hot Peppers-Flakes or Powder whcich di give it a really nice kick! Very easy to make. I did cook the eggplant right along with the peppers and glad I did because it was just the right texture. I did salt the dish as well! Topped with grated cheese.
