    Loved it. I would definitely make it again! Its a great weeknight meal on its own, but I bet with a nice salad and some wine, it would be good for company too! We didn't have any basil on hand, and the recipe was great without it (although next time, I will try it with the basil); couldn't find any brown rice penne, so I used whole wheat rotini (great because it held onto the sauce).

    This is a really simple and delicious dish! Used whole wheat penne and thought that the combination of textures turned out great! Would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a quick and easy meal

    This is an easy way to jazz up a jar of store bought sauce. Not a lot of work to it and the eggplant was cooked properly by following the directions. Works with any kind of pasta of course. Will definitely make again!

    We are trying to find ways of adding veggies that we usually don't eat to our diet. I bought an eggplant (because it was on sale and looked nice) and didn't quite know what to do with it (did I mention I'm just learning how to cook?). This was a great recipe for eggplant, and since most of the other items are staples in our home, it came together easily. Next time I will also add some squash and zucchini to incorporate more veggies.
