  • Salt & pepper

  • Fresh parsley

METHOD

  1. Place diced eggplant in a colander in the sink, sprinkle generously with salt to draw out some of the moisture. Allow to rest for 20-30 minutes. Rinse and pat dry with paper towel. Set aside.

  2. Heat a large sauce pan over medium heat. Add olive oil, eggplant and 1/3 minced garlic. Add salt. Sauté for 3-5 minutes until golden. Add mushrooms and cook for 2 minutes until vegetables have browned. Set aside and cover.

  3. In the same saucepan, add the remaining garlic and sauté until fragrant. Next, add the pasta sauce and gently simmer. Season to your liking.

  4. Meanwhile, bring a large pot of water to the boil. Add the spaghetti and cook until al dente.

  5. After 6 minutes, add the mushrooms and eggplant to the pasta sauce. Mix well.

  6. Once pasta is cooked, strain and add to the pasta sauce. Combine well, so that all pasta is coated by sauce.

  7. Garnish with basil, parsley and chilli if you like it hot!
