Roasted Eggplant Marinara Sauce

Submitted by: GRIFF963

Introduction

Found this recipe when we had more eggplant than we knew what to do with. Freezes well. I've even thrown it in the crock pot and let it cook all day. Found this recipe when we had more eggplant than we knew what to do with. Freezes well. I've even thrown it in the crock pot and let it cook all day.

Ingredients

    2 pounds eggplant, rinsed, ends trimmed, and cut into 1/2-inch chunks
    3 tablespoons olive oil
    3 tablespoons minced garlic
    About 1/4 teaspoon salt
    About 1/4 teaspoon pepper
    1 onion (about 8 oz.), peeled and diced (1/4 in.)
    3 cans (28 oz. each) crushed or ground tomatoes
    2 teaspoons dried basil
    1 1/2 teaspoons sugar
    1 1/2 teaspoons dried oregano
    3/4 teaspoon hot chili flakes or to taste


Directions

1. In a 12- by 15-inch baking pan, mix eggplant with 2 tablespoons oil, 1 tablespoon garlic, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Bake in a 400 regular or convection oven, stirring once, until eggplant is browned and soft when pierced, 30 to 35 minutes.
2. Pour remaining tablespoon oil into a 5- to 6-quart pan over medium heat. When hot, add onion and remaining 2 tablespoons garlic. Stir frequently until onion is very limp, 5 to 8 minutes.
3. Add tomatoes, basil, sugar, oregano, chili flakes, and roasted eggplant. Cover and simmer, stirring occasionally, until tomatoes have broken down slightly and mixture is thick, 35 to 40 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Yield: Makes About 12 cups, enough for about 2 pounds spaghetti; 8 to 12 servings
