On sunday night, I don’t necessarily feel like cooking, but still feel like having a good meal. And what else than pastas makes everybody happy!
I wouldn’t call my dish a “Caponata“, this great italian dish, but it was inspired by one of my favourite eggplant recipe. I had to do with what I had in the fridge and I had a few ingredients missing. But in the end, it turned out really tasty!
You can also freeze this recipe in muffin tin and then put it in a freezer and have individual portions ready for later.
