Eggplant/Kalamata Pasta

What you need: 

1/2 large eggplant
2 tablespoons olive oil
3 garlic cloves
1 can crushed tomatoes
8 or so kalamata or Greek black olives
8 oz. tofu
1 tablespoon miso
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon salt
whole wheat pasta

What you do: 

Skin eggplant. Slice into rounds and then thin strips.
Saute 3 small cloves of garlic in olive oil. Saute eggplant briefly in the olive oil and garlic. (Olive oil will most likely be absorbed mostly in eggplant, but I did it for a little bit anyway.)
Add can of crushed tomatoes. Pit about 8 olives and add olive flesh to the eggplant. Prepare whole wheat pasta according to package instructions. Drain pasta and add eggplant mixture. Top with tofu cheese:

SO HOW'D IT GO?

this sounds really good. i'd probably add some nutritional yeast to the "cheese" though

Hope this comes out as a reply to your comment, "secondbase"....The tofu cheese recipe comes from the "Uncheese Cookbook" and is supposed to be a goat cheese type.  I think that is why there is no nutritional yeast in it -- to not be too cheesy tasting - a bit more mild, like a goat cheese...but cheesier is probably good, too.  I used this "goat cheese" on my pizza as well and it has been amazing.  I will try the yeast as well.
