Eggplant Pomodoro Pasta Recipe

Eggplant Pomodoro Pasta Recipe

eggplant pomodoro pasta recipe
I make pasta most of the times for dinner either Friday or Saturday’s and that’s why I don’t have the vast collection of pasta recipes in blog since no more I take pictures in night, otherwise for the different experiments I do with pasta I would have had a long list.  Anyways this time for a change I made pasta for Saturday lunch and was able to click few images making the hungry souls wait!

Aubergine tomato pasta pomodoro recipe
If you are  bore or want to try something different from the usual pasta in white sauce or tomato sauce recipe, try this aubergine pomodoro pasta.  Only the name is bit complicated but the recipe is simple and quick.  Normally I make soup along with pasta to make a complete filling meal, some time I fix some quick salad or garlic bread or just add chips.  Anyways that’s me, you can make only pasta if you wish, this pasta is great as lunch box recipe too.
