12 ounces ounces (5 1/2 cups) rigatoni
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 medium eggplant, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
Kosher salt and pepper
3 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
1 pint grape or cherry tomatoes, halved
1/4 cup fresh mint, torn
1/2 cup grated ricotta salata or Parmesan


Cook the pasta according to the package directions.

Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the eggplant, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until golden brown, about 8 minutes. Stir in the garlic and tomatoes and cook, stirring occasionally, until the tomatoes begin to soften, 3 to 4 minutes. Add the cooked pasta and mint and toss.

Divide among individual bowls and top with the grated cheese.
