1 Trim the tops and bottoms of the eggplants and cut them into 6 wedges lengthwise. Cut crosswise into 3 pieces. Pat the pieces dry with paper towels.
2 Line a tray with paper towels. Pour about 1/2 inch of the oil into a medium skillet. Heat over medium heat until a small piece of eggplant sizzles when added to the pan. Carefully add just as many eggplants as will fit comfortably in the pan in a single layer. Cook, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned around the edges, about 5 minutes. Remove the eggplants with a slotted spoon or skimmer and drain on the paper towels. Repeat with the remaining eggplant. Sprinkle with salt.
3 In a large skillet, cook the garlic with the red pepper in the olive oil until the garlic is deep golden, about 4 minutes. Remove and discard the garlic. Add the tomatoes and cook 5 minutes or until thickened.
4 Stir in the eggplants and basil and cook 2 minutes more. Season with salt to taste. Serve hot or at room temperature
