    PaulaG's Note:

    I found this recipe in a magazine and made some very slight changes. I used a gluten free linguine but think it would be just as good served with spaghetti squash. It is a delicious gluten free meal whether served with gluten free pasta or the cooked spaghetti squash.

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Lightly drizzle the cut eggplant with olive oil and sprinkle with fresh ground black pepper. Place on a roasting pan and put in 400 degree oven. Roast for 20 to 25 minutes or until eggplant is tender and begins to brown.
    2. 2
      Warm a small amount of olive oil in a large skillet. Saute onions over medium low heat until they begin to brown slightly, stir in sausage and garlic. Cook until sausage is cooked through. Add in the tomatoes, crushing slightly with a potato masher. Season with oregano, pepper flakes, salt and ground black pepper to taste. Allow the sauce to simmer for 10 to 15 minutes to thicken.
    3. 3
      Put on a pot of water to boil. Add in linguine and cook according to package directions. Reserve a cup of the pasta water, drain pasta and set aside.
    4. 4
      To the meat mixture, add in the raisins, capers and wine vinegar. Simmer for 5 to 7 minutes. Stir in eggplant and parsley. Turn off heat and add in drained pasta. While tossing with tongs add in enough of the reserved pasta water to help sauce coat the cooked pasta.
    5. 5
      Divide the mixture into fourths and crumble feta over all. Sprinkle with additional parsley if desired and serve.

      Wow, did this take me down memory lane. In my childhood, my family went to few restaurants, but there was an Italian one that we visited every now and then. I'm positive this was their pasta sauce. I love it, love it, love it. I did make a few changes, but nothing extreme. Used a whole small onion, no raisins (just didn't seem right), a heaped tablespoon of capers, fettucine and basil (my garden supply of parsley was gone). I will make this again, exactly the same way, and savour the meal as well as the memories. Thanks so very much for posting this unexpected bit of my food history.
