Bacon-Basil-Eggplant Pasta

Here's another simple pasta dish that I came up with months ago.  I was too hungry and haven't gone to the local market, so I ransacked our fridge and cupboard for ingredients and had bacon, tomatoes, eggplant, basil, garlic, onions and spaghetti.  That's pretty much the ingredients needed for this recipe.

Bacon-Basil-Eggplant Pasta
  • Garlic, chopped
  • Onions, sliced
  • Eggplant, sliced
  • Tomatoes, sliced
  • Fresh basil (don't put too much)
  • Bacon
  • Spaghetti
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Parmesan, grated
  1. Cook pasta according to package instruction.
  2. Render bacon on a deep pan.  This means cook bacon alone on a medium heated pan.
  3. Set aside bacon.  Sweat onion on bacon fat.  Sweat, meaning, letting the onion turn translucent and not burning its sides.
  4. Add tomatoes, then eggplant.  Once eggplant and tomatoes are cooked, add cooked pasta and toss it.
  5. Stir in bacon and fresh basil.  Add salt and pepper.  Don't forget to taste it so you could adjust how salty you want it!
  6. Serve it with parmesan cheese.
