AUBERGINE! Isn’t that a neat word? I love the sound and look of it. Who would guess that it is what we call an EGGPLANT? In my mind, it brings up the rich, dark purple color of a perfect eggplant.
CAMPANELLE! That’s the name of the shape of the pasta. Another sound treat! I love words!
DH likes to shop for produce with me at our favorite ethnic-type supermarket, and ever since some leftover eggplant made its way into some spaghetti sauce, he has been clamoring for another dose – only with enhanced quantities of the eggplant. So here it is – invisible in the picture, but I assure you that there is a massive amount of aubergine hidden away in that tomato-y sauce.
