Cherry Tomato Eggplant Pasta

Olive Oil

Salt Pepper

Cherry Tomatoes


Fresno Chili

Penne Pasta




Toss the eggplant with salt in a colander. Let it sit for 20 minutes to get out the excess moisture. Then pat it dry with a towel.

Prep the eggplant.

Cook the pasta until al dente according to package instructions in salted boiling water.

Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat.

While the pasta is cooking:

Then put all the cooked eggplant back into the skillet.

Sauté the eggplant in 2 batches until it starts to brown and turn soft, about 3-4 minutes.

Add the garlic and chilies to the eggplant, sautéing until fragrant, about 1 minute.

Stir in the tomatoes, salt and pepper. Continue cooking the tomatoes for a few minutes, so they get juicy and wrinkled.

Stir the cooked pasta into the tomatoes and eggplant.

Finish the pasta with chopped parsley and shaved Parmesan before serving.
