- Bring a large saucepan of lightly-salted water to a boil; stir in the pasta and cook uncovered stirring occasionally until tender but still firm to the bite; about 13 minutes. Drain and return to the pot.
- Stir the eggplant mixture into the pasta along with the basil and olives. Spoon the tomato sauce overtop to serve.
