RECIPE RECOMMENDATION: Rigatoni with Eggplant Puree

Finally this week, if you're looking for a nice way to make use of those eggplants and tomatoes, here's a recommendation from CSA member Jason for Rigatoni with Eggplant Puree.

Jason says:

"The New Girl tomatoes from last week's share worked great in place of the cherry tomatoes in the recipe.  It ends up being a surprisingly rich, savory sauce, with not a lot of eggplant taste.  Even the household non-eggplant-fan enjoyed it!"

Thanks, Jason!  Sound delicious!

 

That's it for this week! Enjoy the share!
