      Title: Cheesy eggplant pasta sauce
 Categories: Digest
      Yield: 2 Servings
 
      2 tb Dry sherry
      1    Japanese eggplant cut into
           -small cubes
      6    8 mushrooms, sliced
      2    Cloves garlic, minced
    1/4    Red pepper in 1/2 inch or
      1    Cm cubes
    1/2 ts Red pepper flakes (to
           -taste)
    1/2 c  Fatfree cottage cheese
    1/4 c  Fresh basil leaves, chopped
      2 tb Nutritional yeast (probably
           -optional)
 
  Soak the eggplant cubes in water for 5 minutes, drain & rinse off.
  Heat up the sherry and add eggplant & mushrooms, cover, and cook on
  low til done (took about 10 minutes, and there was quite a bit of
  liquid from the mushrooms).  Add garlic a few minutes into this
  (whenever it's chopped up :-)  When eggplant is almost done, add red
  pepper cubes & cook a few more minutes. Then, add the red pepper
  flakes, cottage cheese (I blended first in a mini food processor so
  it was smooth), basil, salt to taste. Mix and cook several more
  minutes. Add nut. yeast. I ate this on fresh linguine.
  
  The interesting effect that happened was that the sauce developed
  "threads" as if it had grated, melted real cheese (if you know what I
  mean). This happened before I added the nut. yeast (I added the nut.
  yeast to make it cheesier to take advantage of its texture).
    Any idea what combined to make this happen?  Could it be the cottage
  cheese (brand was Hood, and it was my first time adding that to a
  stovetop sauce) or the sherry (usually I saute just in water or
  stock)?
  
  Try this if you want to feel like you're eating pasta sauce w/cheese!
  I don't like that texture much myself, unfortunately.... but it was
  very realistic, complete to sticking to the fork as I ate! If you try
  it let me know how it comes out.  I still have the same ingredients
  on hand so I may try some more experiments with this combination,
  esp. since I do like cheesy lasagna....
