 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1       lg           Eggplant
      1/2   c            Lowfat Yogurt
    2       tb           Tahini
      1/4   c            Dry Sherry
      1/4   c            Lemon Juice
    3                    Cloves Garlic -- minced
    1       tb           Olive Oil
      1/2   ts           Salt
      1/8   ts           To 1/4 t Cayenne -- to taste
      1/4   c            Fresh Parsley -- for
                         Garnish
    1       lb           Dry Pasta -- * see note
 
   * spirals or wide ribbons are recommended.
   
   Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Cut the eggplant in
   half, and place cut side down on lightly oiled baking
   sheet.  Pierce with fork several times, then bake for
   40 minutes, until really soft and collapsing.  When it
   has cooled, scoop out the insides and puree everything
   except the parsley and pasta in a food processor or
   blender.  Let sit awhile to flavors can blend.
   
   Bring several quarts of water to a boil and cook pasta
   al dente.  While pasta is cooking, gently heat the
   sauce.  Drain the pasta and mix with the sauce.
   Garnish with fresh parsley (you can also put parmesan
   on this, it sounds really weird but is good - it’s
   also good without it!).
