Marcey’s 30 Minute Pot Luck Pasta Dish!

Eggplant PastaYesterday, I had a pot luck dinner to go to.  I had spent the morning dealing with car repairs.  By the time I got home, I didn’t feel like doing much of anything.  Go shopping to get what I needed for the pot luck?  Nah.  I decided to just make something from what I had. 

I pulled together the ingredients I had on hand. Well!  It looked like I was going to make a pasta dish using eggplant from the garden.  It’s too hot for tomatoes in Texas right now.  So I used canned.  I threw together this dish.  It took about 30 minutes.   It tasted pretty good, especially the next day!  I am definitely keeping this recipe for everyday!
