Vegan Eggplant Pasta with Mushroom Marinara Sauce

May 28, 2015
Eggplant and mushrooms are my favorite things to eat! They both are very versatile to use because you can put them in pastas, stir frys, bakes, you name it. Whenever my mom makes spaghetti, she always includes mushrooms in the sauce and I've grown to love it so I wanted to make a marinara sauce inspired by her. With this sauce handy, all you have to do is cook the pasta noodles, bake the cubed eggplant, and combine all the ingredients together in a large sauce pan. This vegan eggplant pasta with mushroom marinara sauce is delicious, hearty, and full of flavor!

* I love using Trader Joe’s Organic Brown Rice & Quinoa Spaghetti Pasta. The picture of the pasta somewhat looks different because I also used black bean spaghetti, which I highly recommend also.
