Eggplant Pasta Recipe with step by step pictures. Tomato pasta with fried eggplants tossed into it. This delicious pasta taste amazing with some garlic bread on the side.
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

Ingredients for Eggplant Pasta Recipe
The flavour of eggplant is similar to that of summer squash or zucchini: tender, mild, and sweet with a slight vegetal bitterness. The flavour of whatever is cooked with the eggplant will be absorbed. When raw, it has a firm and spongy texture, but when cooked, it becomes meltingly tender.
When chewed, good pasta will have a chewy texture with a bounce. These are qualities that cannot be determined until the pasta has been cooked, but if the pasta wants to stick together after cooking or has an overly soft texture when chewed.
The flavour of mozzarella is anything but simple for such a simple cheese. Our favourite mozzarellas have just the right amount of milky, grassy, and floral notes, with a hint of tang.
