Pasta Sauce with Tomato, Aubergine and Red Peppers

Often a pasta dish is my go-to Saturday or Sunday night fare. With a friend from a good Italian commercial pasta making family, we are never short of good pasta. This dish combines the classic flavours of an Italian pasta dish. Use a great spaghetti, a thick one if you can, or thin if you cannot. Pasta shells work well also.

If you have some whole frozen tomatoes in the freezer, this is a dish where you use them. Canned tomatoes are also Ok, either diced or crushed. Or use fresh, juicy tomatoes, diced or grated.
