Eggplant Pasta Recipe / Eggplant and Tomato Pasta Recipe


Pasta is one of my favourite to cook mostly for dinner. I find it to be so satisfying and so easy to put together. My top favourite is tomato based ones and my sister loves her white sauce pasta a lot. 
Eggplant is my all time favourite veggie and i love to add it in pasta a lot because it gives a nice taste to it and it goes perfect with that. I added cubes of mozzarella in to cooked hot pasta and added the piping hot sauce to it, this melts the mozzarella just a little and it stays in cubes which are just melted in the middle, so when you take a bite, you will get a taste of small bullets of molten cheese..YUM
