Red Pepper Eggplant Pasta

My husband Marcus is very good at whipping up meals with whatever we have on hand.  The other day he made this Red Pepper Eggplant Pasta, but didn’t measure any of the ingredients.  So he made it a second time and measured everything out so we could share it with you guys.  Some of Marcus’s creations have ended up being the most popular recipes on my site.  A few examples are the Sweet Potato Chili and the Peanut Noodle Stir Fry.

This is super simple to whip up, and you will have meals all week long.  We used gluten free pasta in ours, but I think regular pasta will also work.

    1. Thanks Emilie! I am not a huge eggplant fan, but I do love it roasted. I made eggplant bacon once and that was pretty good too!
