I had so many different veggies in the fridge that I decided to make this dish. It was so good. You can also serve at room temperature on crackers as an appetizer or heated on grilled meats.

Heat deep skillet until oil ripples - the pan needs to be hot for the eggplant not to soak up all the oil at once. Saute eggplant in oil, adding a bit more if needed. Add onion, carrots, beans, mushrooms and garlic. Saute about 5 minutes uncovered. Add entire jar of sauce. Use stock to clean out jar and add to vegetables. Cook covered about 20 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, boil and salt water. Add pasta and cook to your desired tenderness, about 7 minutes. Strain pasta, add to skillet and combine well with caponata. Simmer about 2 minutes. Garnish with grated parmesan. Serve at room temperature on crackers or on grilled meats!
