I added sauted Eggplant to our spaghetti the other day and was surprised at how good it was! It almost had a meaty texture. This time I subbed the eggplant for the meat entirely. I cubed it smaller in hopes Z wouldn't pick it out lol. I added quite a bit of garlic, bell pepper, and about a cup of fresh chopped spinach. (put the spinach in right before serving so it's not cooked). My favorite pasta for spagetti is the Central Market brand Spinach Tagliatelle. It's awesome! Served with pumpernickel toast. DH didn't complain so I guess that's a good sign lol.
