1 (6 ounce) can tomato paste
½ cup red wine or water
1 medium eggplant (about 1 pound), cut into ½-inch cube

Grated Parmesan cheese, for garnish if desired
1. Combine tomatoes, tomato paste, wine, eggplant, onion, garlic, oregano, and ½ teaspoon salt in a 5-quart slow cooker; cover and cook on low 4 hours or until eggplant is soft and sauce is thick.
