Fast & Easy Recipe For Asian-Style Vegetable Pasta

Monday's Leftovers: Asian-Style Vegetable Pasta

After yesterday's hearty grilled eggplant parmigiana, I've got a surplus of eggplant. Thankfully, I came across a unique recipe that I can't wait to make. A tossed pasta and vegetable combo that uses Italian staples such as pappardelle and eggplant with Asian flavor notes like rice vinegar and soy sauce. My dinner companions will love the symphony of textures: the sweet snap of snow peas, crunchy red bell peppers, tender eggplant, and toothsome al dente ribbon pasta. Make this impressive Monday night meal when you read more.

Ingredients

3 tablespoons soy sauce
