Ingredients

  • 1/2 lb. pasta used farfalle here
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 small onion finely chopped
  • 1 medium eggplant cubed (approx 1.5 cm cubes)
  • 4 vegan sausages diced (approx 1.5 cm)
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • 2 tsp dried oregano
  • 3 cloves of garlic minced
  • 2 large zucchini diced (approx 1 cm)
  • 1 28 oz. can crushed tomatoes
  • 2 to 3 tbsp capers to taste
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh parsley

Instructions

  • Cook the pasta in salted water until barely al dente, then drain.
  • Meanwhile, in a large pan add the olive oil, chopped onion and eggplant and cook over medium heat for 10 minutes partially covered, stirring every few minutes.
  • Add the diced sausages and all the seasonings, stir, and cook 5 to 7 minutes, stirring periodically, until sausages are getting browned.
  • Add the diced zucchini, and make room for them in the pan to cook for 5 minutes (or until just barely fork tender - do not overcook). If your pan is on the smaller side, you may need to transfer some of the sausage mixture to a plate while the zucchini cooks.
  • Add the garlic, cook another minute. Add the crushed tomatoes, stir, cook 3 minutes. Add the cooked pasta, stir, cook together for a few minutes until pasta is al dente.
  • Taste and season with salt or pepper if desired, or a drizzle of olive oil.
  • Serve and top with capers and the fresh parsley.
