This dish is delicious and very easy to prepare. Penne Siciliano was my favorite dish at a little local Italian restaurant in Seattle, and I was sad when they closed their doors, as I've never seen this on another menu in a local restaurant. I substituted 3 cans of S&W Italian Recipe tomatoes (drained), added a little crushed red pepper, and used fresh Mozzarella. This recipe is a keeper that I will use again and again. Thank you so much for sharing!

Wonderful pasta dish. I used fresh from the garden tomatoes and basil. The mozzarella was the real stuff and everything was topped off with some additional basil and freshly grated Parmesan cheese. I did use about 6 to 8 oz of pasta and had plenty for the tomato/eggplant mix.
