A very simple recipe. This smells so good cooking. And tastes just as good as it smells. I found this gem online while trying to figure out what to do with fresh eggplant from the garden.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large pot, cook linguine according to package directions and drain.
  2. Put linguine in a large bowl and toss with 2 tablespoons olive oil; set aside.
  3. In the same pot, heat the remaining olive oil over medium-high heat.
  4. Saute the eggplant for 10 to 12 minutes, until lightly browned.
  5. Add garlic powder, oregano, salt, and pepper.
  6. Saute for about 5 more minutes.
  7. Add tomatoes, parsley, and linguine and toss gently until heated through.
  8. Serve immediately.

BarbryT... I want to make this dish but read your review and you gave it only 3 stars. I was puzzled with the 3 stars because you said you liked the dish and the presentation. did I miss something? Help

I enjoyed this dish. Probably because I used a very fruity olive oil, that taste overwhelmed the others. I would recommend a lighter EVOO. Also, I suggest more garlic powder. (I used a large clove of fresh garlic, minced and, after tasting, still added the garlic powder.) It's a pretty presentation.
