- Serves: Serves 8
- Baking Time: 30 mins
1 1/2-pound eye-of-round roast, all visible fat discarded
1/2 teaspoon salt-free all-purpose seasoning
1/4 teaspoon pepper
2 cups chopped eggplant (about 10 ounces)
2 medium zucchini, sliced
5 medium Italian plum tomatoes, chopped
10.75-ounce can tomato puree
1 large onion, chopped (Spanish preferred)
2 medium ribs of celery, sliced
1 teaspoon dried oregano or salt-free Italian seasoning, crumbled
1 medium garlic clove, minced
1 bay leaf
1/4 teaspoon dried basil, crumbled
8 ounces dried pasta
Sprinkle the meat with the all-purpose seasoning and pepper. Put it in the Dutch oven and brown on all sides over medium-high heat, about 10 minutes.
Stir in the remaining ingredients except the pasta.
Bake, covered, for 2 hours 30 minutes, or until very tender.
Prepare the pasta using the package directions, omitting the salt and oil. Drain well.
Meanwhile, remove the roast from the sauce. Slice thinly across the grain, then slice into thin strips. Discard the bay leaf from the sauce.
To serve, spoon the pasta onto plates. Arrange the roast on the pasta. Top with the sauce.
