Pasta with Roasted Eggplant Sauce  Recipe

Pasta with Roasted Eggplant Sauce


Roasted eggplant pasta sauce is a fun change from your typical tomato sauce, with a big flavor boost from roasted eggplants and garlic.


  • 2 small eggplants, peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 6 cloves garlic, crushed and peeled
  • ½ cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 (16 ounce) package penne pasta
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 yellow onion, finely chopped
  • 1 (28 ounce) can diced tomatoes
  • 1 cup fresh basil leaves


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. Spread eggplants and garlic cloves on a rimmed baking sheet. Brush with 1/2 cup olive oil; season with salt and pepper.
  3. Roast in the preheated oven until soft, about 20 minutes.
  4. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil while eggplants and garlic are roasting. Add penne and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender yet firm to the bite, about 11 minutes. Drain.
  5. Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion; cook and stir until softened, about 5 minutes.
  6. Place eggplants and garlic in a food processor; process into a smooth paste. Stir paste into the onions in the skillet. Stir in tomatoes. Cook until heated through, about 5 minutes. Season sauce with salt and pepper. Toss hot penne and basil into the sauce and mix together.
