A yummy combination of different tastes to make a delicious non-meat entre.

Angel Hair Pasta w/Eggplant-Tomato Sauce
The eggplant and the tomatoes blend to create this delicious meal.

You do not have to use eggplant for this recipe, though; you can use other vegetables, such as bell peppers and mushrooms. This is one of my favorites because I get tired of cooking that same old chicken every Sunday, so I like to change the ingredients and add a little bit of Italian flavor to this dish.
