A touch of balsamic vinegar gives this gratin a slight sweetness reminiscent of caponata. Serve with pork chops or pork tenderloin.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°.

Step 2

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add eggplant, onion, and bell pepper; sauté 5 minutes or until eggplant is tender. Add tomato and garlic; sauté 1 minute. Remove from heat; stir in noodles and next 5 ingredients (through black pepper). Spoon into an 11 x 7-inch baking dish coated with cooking spray; sprinkle evenly with cheese. Bake at 350° for 25 minutes or until thoroughly heated and cheese melts.

Another good use for too many eggplants

Good solid side recipe. I did add 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper as it needed some zing. It was good left over.  Don't see why the cheese could not be switched out to Asiago or Fontina.
