    1 pound penne pasta
    1/3 cup olive oil, plus 2 tablespoons
    3 garlic cloves, minced
    1/2 teaspoon red chili flakes (plus more to taste)
    1/4 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley, plus 1/3 cup
    4 Japanese eggplants, ends trimmed, thinly sliced lengthwise, then cut into squares
    1 pound swordfish steaks, skin removed, cut into 1-inch cubes
    1/3 cup white wine
    2 cups halved teardrop or cherry tomatoes (red, yellow or a blend)
    Extra-virgin olive oil, for drizzling
    3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
    3/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

    *My nutritional info uses Barilla Plus Penne & Swanson 98% Fat Free Chicken broth instead of wine, as well as 1 cup of black olives. Above is the original ingredient list.


Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over high heat. Add the pasta and cook until tender but still firm to the bite, stirring occasionally, about 8 to 10 minutes. Drain pasta.

Meanwhile, place a large, heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Add the 1/3 cup olive oil, garlic, red chili flakes, and 1/4 cup parsley. Stir and cook until fragrant, about 1 to 2 minutes. Add the eggplant and cook until tender, about 5 minutes. Remove the eggplant from the pan and set aside. Season the swordfish cubes with salt and pepper.

Using the same pan, over medium-high heat, add the 2 remaining tablespoons of olive oil and cook the swordfish until opaque, about 5 minutes. Add the white wine and cook until almost evaporated, about 2 minutes. Turn off the heat. Add the tomatoes, eggplant, cooked pasta, the remaining 1/3 cup parsley and stir. Drizzle with extra-virgin olive oil and sprinkle with the salt and pepper. Stir to combine.
