Grated eggplant and pasta dish

I don’t really enjoy cooking on sunday night, but I definitely feel like having a good meal. So I remembered one of my favorites eggplant recipes, modified it a bit to match what I had in my fridge and here we are: after a bit of work and not even an hour we’re having a dinner of the week. Hope you’ll enjoy it as well!

“I made this for date night with my husband and we both loved it! I used a little more eggplant, a red bell pepper and used a gluten free corn pasta. I also used a vegan mozzarella cheese that was recommended in the comments section. Everything went well together and I will definitely make again!”
