One Pot Eggplant Mushroom Pasta

I am a huge fan of one pot pasta recipes- it's less to clean up, and the pasta has a delicious flavor since it's actually cooked in the sauce.  

  • 12 ounces dry pasta
  • 1/2 small eggplant, cubed
  • 2 cups cremini or button mushrooms, sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced and divided
  • 1.5 cups vegan marinara sauce
  • 2 cup water
  • 2 tsp sea salt + more for eggplant
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • Optional: Fresh parsley or basil for finishing
