A plate of pasta at noon

Ever since we came back from Italy, both Frank and I have been longing for a nice plate of pasta at lunch! In Italy They eat their carbs earlier on in the day (for lunch) and then have something light for dinner. So in true Sicilian style I cooked us a plate of rigatoni (my favorite) with some of nonna's sauce and grilled eggplants on top. It definitely hit the spot not to mention that pasta is one of the cheapest foods which is great when you are feeding large groups of people. Talk about being frugal ;)
