I tried this recipe yesterday for lunch and instead of the goats cheese i added a tin of tuna,olives and capers(only a little just for taste)and half teaspoon oregano.It tasted lovely with spaghetti.

Really lovely, I only had soft Goats Cheese in the fridge. And i thought that it made the sauce really creamy. Yummy.

Great recipe. Instead of stirring through the goat's cheese, I sprinkle it on top at the end to stop it from melting into the sauce.

Definite hit! Combination of aubergine and goat's cheese was expectedly brilliant!

yeah this one is pretty good. i recommend using feta instead of soft goats cheese as that will melt into the sauce and you lose the texture! simmer the sauce for a bit longer than 5 minutes so as to get the aubergines nice and soft! takes a few goes to get this one right but if you do it's top notch!

lovely for a quick and easy veggie meal, really simple to make.
I misread the instructions the first time I did it and put the aubergine in with the pasta for the last few minutes of cooking time.
That worked OK too!!
I'm trying it the 'proper' way tonight though....
