This hearty recipe for Fettuccelle con Melanzana Rustica (Pasta with Eggplant Peasant Style) was sent to CCSA as part of a series of emails from our resident chef, Dr. Linda Doody. She began sharing her extensive collection of favorite recipes with friends, family, and the CCSA team as a means of maintaining connection during the COVID-19 pandemic and it has since become a CCSA tradition.
“Life is a combination of magic and pasta.”
