  4. Melt the butter for the vegetable layer in a large pan over medium heat.

  5. Add the onion and sauté until golden. Add the eggplant and the mushrooms and sauté, stirring, for about 5 minutes. Add salt to taste and remove from heat.

  7. Pour half of the pasta into a greased 9x13-inch baking pan or oven-to-tableware and spread the mushroom and eggplant mixture on top.
