salt and pepper. Cook over high heat for one minute, stirring. Add the
shrimp to the sauce, blend well and cook for one minute. Keep warm.
Meanwhile, salt the water and bring to a boil in a kettle. Add the
spaghetti and cook to the desired degree of doneness. Drain the spaghetti
and return it to the kettle. Add the shrimp and eggplant mixture, toss well
and serve immediately with cheese. Serves 4. From The Gazette 90/12/12.
