  • When somebody says "pasta" I'm thinking Sicilian Gravy- thatís one kind of special tomato sauce. The secret is eggplant. Yeah, yeah .I know you are saying "Eggplant?" Well that's what makes this gravy not so Sicilian, but Spectacular. I cooked it up real thick and flavorful so it clings to any of your favorite pasta. Trust me on this!
