Chunky Eggplant Sauce for Pasta

Got an eggplant? 

This chunky eggplant sauce makes my mouth water! And it's fast and easy to make too!!

With only 5 ingredients, this vegetable sauce is a perfect complement for any kind of pasta ( gluten free of course), including low carb zucchini noodles which is what is in the photo.

It does have a little kick to it, but of course you could be tone it down.
Made from entirely vegetables, this healthy sauce is low calorie and absolutely delicious and filling too.

I like to simmer the sauce covered on a very low flame for about forty minutes to allow the eggplant, red peppers, and tomato flavors to mingle while the vegetables soften and the sauce thickens.

I used the eggplant sauce two ways for dinner.

  1. I ate my eggplant spaghetti sauce over zucchini noodles 
  2. My husband ate his over gluten free brown rice noodles that I bought from Trader Joe's. 

Brown Rice Gluten Free Pasta ( 1.99 at Trader Joe's) 

If you don't know how to make zucchini noodles, it's really really simple.
Buy a medium or large zucchini, cut it in half . place in the spiralizer, and turn the handle of your spriralizer ( I bought this one from Amazon Spiralizer By Palermo  I can make a bowl full for one person in 1 minute.

Some enjoy eating their zucchini noodles ( zoodles) raw; personally, I like mine tossed quickly in a skillet with a touch of olive oil. I like mine a little softened.

1 medium eggplant, peeled and chopped in chunks
5 red mini peppers, cleaned and chopped
2 large tomatoes, cored and chopped
1 8 ounce can of organic chopped tomatoes with jalepenos ( or add your own)
1/2 can of tomato paste mixed with 2 cups of water
Olive oil spray


Type of Pan: Dutch oven or a deep wide skillet
Spray your pan with olive oil spray. Add the eggplant, red peppers, tomatoes, canned tomatoes, and the tomato paste mixed with water. Stir and cook on a high heat for 2-3 minutes. Reduce heat to a simmer and cover. Check periodically and stir. Serve when eggplant is soft.

Where do you buy a spiralizer? 

They sell spiralizers in any store where they have kitchen items.
I bought a hand held spiralizer , but didn't like it. I found it too difficult to make a quantity of spirals.
 I then went online and bought the Palermo.
It's light, easy to use, and easy to wash.

Get one- they are reasonable and so so easy to use and clean up! Once you have one, you won't know how you lived without it! 

Spiralizer By Palermo- Voted the Best Vegetable Maker 

I highly recommend this one!!!
