    Obesity II - A Model that Works

    Pasta with Eggplant, Peppers and Tomato
    Chef Ann Cooper formerly of the Ross School – East Hampton, NY
    Adapted by StarChefs

    Yield: 50 Pounds/200 Servings (4 ounces each)

    • 22¾ pounds eggplant, cut into 1-inch cubes
    • 11½ pounds red pepper, julienned
    • 11½ pounds onion, julienned
    • 11½ pounds fresh tomatoes, peeled, chopped and juiced
    • 1½ ounces garlic, sliced
    • ¼ ounce Chinese dried red chiles, crushed
    • 32 pounds dry pasta, any variety
    • 1.6 pints extra virgin olive oil
    • 26 ounces fresh basil, chiffonade
    • 16 pounds parmesan cheese, grated

    For sauce:
    (Make whole batch in advance and then serve out using completed sauce in smaller batches.)
    Heat rondeaux or square head with oil. Add onion and cook until soft. Add garlic, red pepper and chiles and continue cooking until softened. Add eggplant, season well and stir. Lower heat so eggplant doesn’t stick and stir from time to time until it begins to soften. (Pan can also be covered and placed in 400°F oven, stirring occasionally.)

    Once eggplant has softened and developed color, add chopped tomato and its juices. Raise heat and bring everything to a simmer. Cook until acid from tomato is cooked out and flavors meld. Stir in basil and remove from heat.

    For service:
    Heat sauté pan with oil and reheat a few ladlefuls of eggplant sauce. If sauce is too thick or begins to stick, add a little pasta cooking liquid. Reheat al dente pasta, drain and add to pan. Stir to coat pasta. Off the heat, drizzle with olive oil, toss with parmesan cheese and serve.
