Congratulations—You just found your new go-to pasta salad! This veggie-packed beauty is nice and filling, thanks to meaty eggplant. If you can’t find burrata, simply tear 6 ounces of fresh mozzarella into bite-size pieces. Heading to a potluck? Feel free to make this recipe ahead of time; just be sure to let it come to room temperature and toss with an extra drizzle of vinegar and oil before serving. Add a few tablespoons of chopped fresh basil leaves for an extra layer of flavor.

How to Make It

Step 1

Cook pasta according to package directions, omitting salt and fat. Add green beans during last 3 minutes of cooking. Reserve 1 cup of the cooking liquid; drain.

Step 2

Meanwhile, heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high. Add eggplant, and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, 4 to 5 minutes. Add garlic; cook until fragrant, 1 minute. Add half of tomatoes; cook until juices start to release, about 2 to 3 minutes.

Step 3

Add wine; cook, stirring often, until most of wine evaporates. Add pasta and beans; toss to combine. Add reserved pasta cooking liquid, a couple of tablespoons at a time, if mixture is too dry. Stir in remaining tomatoes, vinegar, and salt. Divide pasta mixture among 4 bowls. Top evenly with burrata, thyme, and pepper.
