Eggplant Marinara

This recipe is so simple, fast and easy. It will rival any 30 minute meal, meal in box or heat and serve meals.
The thing that makes this recipe a winner is the use of fresh healthy ingredients.
This is one of my GO TO meals on those days when the kids are crying, screaming and fighting. When I need something fast and easy. This will have them with food on their forks in less than 30 minutes.

1 med-large eggplant diced (skin on)
1 Onion
3 cloves of Garlic
Canned tomatoes
Canned Stewed tomatoes
Small can of sliced mushrooms
Fresh Oregano
Salt and Pepper

Bring salted water to boil for your noodles. I like to use small size pasta so the kids can get it on their forks and in their mouth with minimal mess and frustration. Something even a sassy 2-year-old can eat easily.

Dice the eggplant, onion and garlic
In a Large skillet, sauté olive oil, onion, garlic, mushrooms and eggplant.
Add canned tomatoes and all spices.
Let simmer until the pasta is finished cooking.
Sprinkle a little fresh Parmesan cheese on each serving.
Serve along side salad and yummy fresh bakery bread.
Now enjoy your glass of wine and the quiet that comes over your house.

Comments and suggestions always welcome and appreciated.
