Linguine with Eggplant and Olives: Main Image

Quick Facts

Servings: 6
A very rich vegetable pasta dish, as quite a bit of oil is needed to fry the eggplant. Use only the freshest ingredients for this simple yet elegant dish.

Ingredients

  • 12 oz linguine, uncooked
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 large eggplant, chopped into 1-inch (2.5cm) cubes
  • 1/2 tsp oregano
  • 1/2 tsp basil
  • 1/2 tsp thyme
  • 3 medium tomatoes, coarsely chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups black olives, whole or sliced
  • 3/4 cup Italian parsley, chopped

Directions

  • Cook linguine in boiling water for 10 minutes or until done. Drain.
  • Heat olive oil in a 12-inch (30cm) non-stick skillet and sauté garlic and onions. Add cubed eggplant and fry for about 10 minutes, until eggplant is soft and turns a dark color. Add oregano, basil and thyme and cook for 1 minute more. Add tomatoes and cook for 1–2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add olives and simmer for 5–10 minutes, until the tomatoes cook down a bit. The sauce should be thick. Transfer pasta into the skillet and toss to soak up all the juices in the skillet.
  • Place in a warmed serving bowl and top with parsley. Serve with Parmesan cheese, if desired.
