1 small eggplant, cut into medium pieces

1 red bell pepper, cut into medium strips

1/2 teaspoon salt

Cook pasta according to instructions. While the pasta is cooking, heat olive oil in a large skillet.  Cook the garlic until it starts to brown.  Add the vegetables and salt.  Cook covered, stirring occasionally until the vegetables are soft.
