What You'll Need

  • 1 pound linguine
  • 2/3 cup olive oil, divided
  • 2 small eggplant (about 1 pound total), cut into 1/2-inch chunks (see Notes)
  • 1 tablespoon chopped garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 plum tomatoes, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

What to Do

  1. In a large pot, cook linguine according to package directions and drain. Place linguine in a large bowl and toss with 2 tablespoons oil; set aside.
  2. In the same pot, heat remaining oil over medium-high heat. Saute eggplant 10 to 12 minutes, until lightly browned. Add garlic, oregano, salt, and pepper, and saute about 5 more minutes.
  3. Add tomatoes, parsley, and linguine, and toss gently until heated through. Serve immediately.


  • If you prefer, go ahead and peel the eggplant before cutting it into chunks.
  • A warm, crusty hunk of garlic bread sure is the perfect way to sop up the sauce that's left on your plate.

I've found that sometimes the bigger sized eggplants can be a little bitter, largely due to the seeds. My grandmother used to make eggplant parmigiana for my Italian grandfather when I was a child, and she taught me a little trick sprinkle it with salt, let it drain into a colander for about 15 minutes, then rinse off the salt and pat dry. If you use the smaller varieties of eggplant, there are a lot less seeds in them and therefore are already less bitter!

I wonder about adding left over chicken of beef?

Great recipe. I added onions, peppers and a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese. Even better.
