Recipe #5: Penne with Eggplant, Tomatoes, Black Olives and Basil

I didn’t have high hopes for this recipe because it just seemed too easy. But, I never should have doubted the A16 bunch, they do good work! Super easy & super good!

There are a few tricks & substitutions to cooking this pasta dish:
1. Make sure your pan & oil is really hot before you put your eggplant in. It will be easier to brown this way.
2. I you don’t have cherry tomatoes on hand, substitute cubed romas.
3. Black olives could be substituted by kalamatas.

I don’t want to get in trouble for reprinting the recipe on my site, but someone wasn’t as much of a scaredy cat as me, so you can find the recipe here.
