Recipe Ingredients for Eggplant Pasta From Good Eats: The Early Years

1 large eggplant, about 1 pound
1 kosher salt
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/4 teaspoon garlic minced
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 small tomato, seeded and chopped
3 tablespoons heavy cream
1 tablespoon basil, chiffonade
2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese grated
1 tablespoon breadcrumbs

Recipe Directions for Eggplant Pasta From Good Eats: The Early Years

  1. Peel the eggplant, leaving 1 inch of skin at the top and bottom. Slice the eggplant lengthwise into 1/4-inch-thick slices. (I would use a mandolin for this.)

  2. Place the eggplant slices on a cooling rack set over the sink and sprinkle generously with kosher salt. Wait 15 minutes, flip, sprinkle again, and wait another 15 minutes. Rinse thoroughly under cool water and gently squeeze out excess water. Place on paper towels and pat dry, then cut the slices into 1/4-inch-wide strips so that they resemble linguine.

  3. Heat a 10-inch sauté pan over medium-high heat and add the oil. When it shimmers, add the garlic and red pepper flakes and toss for 10 seconds. Add the eggplant and toss to coat. Add the tomato and toss for 15 to 20 seconds. Add the cream and toss for another 10 seconds. Finish with the basil and Parmesan. Transfer to a serving dish, top with breadcrumbs, toss, and serve immediately.
