Spicy Fresh Tomato and Eggplant Sauce

My garden is overflowing with fresh tomatoes and eggplant toward the end of summer, so I've been thinking of ways that those ingredients were used in the old country. A heart gravy (what it's called in Sicily) for pasta is just the ticket. You can add meat or sprinkle it with Parmesan if you'd like, but it is good on its own. It also freezes well. —Teri Rasey, Cadillac, Michigan
