Eggplant Pasta

I’ve cooked some version of this Eggplant Pasta so many times in so many variations, it was almost hard for me to write down the recipe.

Marblehead - Rolf W. Solstad, 64 years old, passed away unexpectedly in his sleep, April 11, 2021. Rolf, son of the late Oddvar and Mary Ann (Lodge) Solstad, and the beloved brother to three sisters, grew up in Marblehead. Rolf was incredibly creative and sensitive, with wide-ranging talents and interests. Lighting and theatre were his passion, starting at the Marblehead Arts Festival and Marblehead Little Theater, on to studying at Emerson College, and then joining the very wild world of Rock and Roll concert tours. He was part of a team that developed the first innovative moving theater lights, designed so that the color, beam, and pan and tilt of the lights could change during a performance – altering concert and theater lighting forever. He had an uncanny ability to take a visionary concept and bring it into reality. He went on to tour the world with over a dozen top bands, as lighting crew boss and lighting effects engineer. In the 1980s, if you saw David Bowie, The Rolling Stones, James Taylor, Prince, Hall and Oates, Van Halen, Lou Rawls, Natalie Cole, Linda Ronstadt, The Marshall Tucker Band, Devo, The Clash, and others, you likely experienced a bit of Rolf's lighting magic. Later he worked in the commercial film and advertising industry, for regional and national brands. He was gaffer/lighting engineer for one of the first independent American films made in Russia under Perestroika, and worked on films for The Discovery Channel and The Learning Channel. He always managed to find interesting aspects of the current project. Rolf became his best self during his five years as the full-time caregiver for his mother, as she declined from Alzheimer's disease. His compassion, humor, and tenderness as he cared for her at home was an exceptional and true gift of love. The home hospice team marveled at the love and care they felt whenever they entered the home. Rolf and traditional schools did not suit each other, but he was a life-long self-taught student and a voracious reader, with a curiosity about life and people. He left high school and spent a formative year in Norway, living with his uncle, where he worked as a sailmaker and became fluent in Norwegian. He loved his time at Emerson College, but left before graduating for the life of a roadie. He was also a self-taught computer geek, generously helping many family and friends with broken or misbehaving machines. Though he lived and worked many places, Rolf always gravitated back to New England and his beloved Marblehead. Rolf could be a quiet introvert; his family will miss his gentle sense of humor, his engaging smile, his beautiful heart, his masterful storytelling, and the conversations touching on the mundane to the profound. He willingly shared the kindness in his heart, although it was harder for him to receive the love and affirmations of those who loved him. Rolf is survived by his twin sister Karen Solstad, her husband Lars Johannessen, and their children Kina and Tor Johannessen of Amesbury, Mass., and sisters, Christina Solstad of San Diego, Calif. and Berit Solstad and her husband Rick Stevens of Stowe, VT. He also leaves cousins in California, Colorado, Norway, and Sweden. There will be no services at this time, due to the pandemic. We invite friends to share memories of Rolf and his adventures, as we don't know all of them! Your stories will buoy our hearts. https://www.murphyfuneralhome.com/obituary/rolf-solstad. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to Care Dimensions (caredimensions.org) in honor of Rolf and in recognition of the tremendous support they were to Rolf and our family as we cared for our parents.

Newburyport - Jean Marie Rogers Kelly, age 96, died at home peacefully in her sleep after a long, happy and healthy life. She was the wife of the late Bernard J. Kelly (Bernie) of Peabody, MA. Jean was born in Buffalo NY to Frank Jay & Ethel Hill Rogers and grew up in the small town of Darien, NY on her family's dairy farm. She adored her twin brother, the late Robert Rogers (Bob) and her older brother, the late Donald Rogers. Her favorite childhood pastime was to tag along with her brothers, play baseball, raise sheep, and swim in the pond. Having a soft heart from the beginning, Jean regaled in the tale of secretly springing her brothers' muskrat traps and helping feed those less fortunate during the Depression. Jean graduated from Alexander High School in 1942 and the University of Rochester School of Nursing in 1946. Jean's concern for others developed into a career as a professional Registered Nurse in several local hospitals in Peabody, Salem and Lynn, MA. She also worked as a private duty nurse in the area. When WWII ended, Jean married the love of her life, Army First Sargent Bernard J. Kelly. They began a marriage lasting 68 happy years. Jean and Bernie enjoyed traveling the world with their two children as a benefit of Bernie's career with Trans World Airlines. Her family was everything to her. She treasured the days of raising her family in Peabody where she and Bernie lived since 1956. She enjoyed events at the VFW Post 1011 of Peabody and the many friendships that resulted. When Bernie passed in 2014, Jean spent many happy years living with her daughter, son-in-law, grandson and nephew in Newburyport, MA. Jean's hobbies included gardening, bowling and golf. She was President of the Peabody Garden Club, a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution, a parishioner of St. John the Baptist Roman Catholic Church of Peabody and a member of the Ladies Sodality. One of Jean's most notable traits was her kindness. She never had a harsh word for anyone. If she could provide us with advice for a happy life, it would be "Be a nice person, never refuse cookies or ice cream and an evening glass of sherry is always a good way to end the day." She had a great wit and terrific laugh. Her entertaining storytelling warmed our hearts and tickled our souls. She will be greatly missed by her daughter Karen McCarty, son-in-law Thomas McCarty and nephew Donnie Rogers of Newburyport, MA and son Michael Kelly and Ann Marie Phillips of Glen Rock, NJ, grandchildren Ryan McCarty of Boston, MA and Kristina Kelly of Richmond, VA, sister-in-law Dottie Rogers of Buffalo, NY and many nieces and nephews.

Alton Bay - Mr. Allen Eldred Giles, 73 of Alton Bay, N.H., beloved partner of Susan Houghton died peacefully on Tuesday, April 13, 2021 after a courageous battle with ALS. Born in Danvers, Allen was the son of the late Aubert Stanley and Ruth E. (Dupray) Giles. Raised and educated in Danvers, he was a graduate of Danvers High School class of 1965. Allen continued his education at Salem State College, earning his Bachelor's Degree in Business Administration in the early 1970's. A Vietnam-era veteran, Allen proudly served his country as a member of the United States Army. After discharge, Allen started his career at General Electric Aircraft Engines in Lynn, where he worked in Computer Systems Management until the time of his retirement. Allen loved the outdoors, especially New Hampshire's White Mountains and Lake Winnipesaukee, where he summered in Alton Bay from 1955 until his death. He was an avid and accomplished mountaineer, hiker, bicyclist and skier, always waking early to embark on a challenging outdoor adventure. Allen was a member of the Appalachian Mountain Club and the Mount Washington Observatory, and his interests included family history, history of the White Mountains, and maintaining his Alton Bay property and the environment. He served as a Trustee of Levey Park in Alton Bay and took great pride in maintaining the park and working on its trails. New Hampshire's Mount Washington was Allen's favorite place on this Earth, and he was never happier than when hiking it with friends and family. He loved to guide less experienced hikers through its trails and ravines; it was truly "his" mountain, and his spiritual home on earth. Allen made lifelong friends wherever he went, including many in Barefoot Bay, Florida where he wintered. He was a member of American Legion Post 72 in Alton, NH, and The Fraternal Order of Eagles and Fraternal Order of Orioles in Micco, Fla. He loved his experiences on the summit of Mount Washington as a volunteer cook for the Observatory, especially in winter when he had the chance to experience its "worst weather on earth" firsthand. He made many good friends on the Summit, and was proud to be counted a dear friend of the legendary Nin the cat. He was beloved by friends and family numbering in the hundreds if not thousands, all of whom will terribly miss him, his vibrant baritone voice, and his larger-than-life energy. In addition to his partner Susan Houghton of Alton Bay, NH, Allen is survived by his loving daughters, Tammy Stapleton and her husband Donald of Reading and Wendy Tinkham and her husband Michael of Salisbury; his grandchildren whom he adored, Camden, Riley, Lucas, Ella, Devyn and Brooklyn, his brother, Aubert "Stan" Giles and his wife Marie of FL; his nephews, Brad and Scott Giles; Susan's children Mary Margaret Wons, Justine Houghton, and James Houghton and his wife Jodi and their children Max and Claire; the mother of his children and lifelong friend Judith McGrath-Malko; numerous cousins, extended family and dear friends. Allen will be returned to his mountain he so loved, to guard it for those he leaves behind until we meet again. Relatives and friends are invited to attend Allen's funeral service which will be held from the Peterson-O'Donnell Funeral Home, 167 Maple St., (Rte. 62) Danvers on Monday, April 19th at 12:15 p.m. All attendees must register to attend the funeral by clicking the link below or by calling the funeral home (978-774-6600).

West Newbury - Roger passed in the comfort of his home in Lakewood Ranch, Florida, surrounded by his family and the love he shared in life. Roger's positive attitude and determination to remain strong in the face of various health issues over the years helped him lead a life of meaning, joy, and purpose. Those who knew him admired his ability to remain positive during difficult times, he inspired others to do so as well. Roger never let a day go by without telling a joke of some kind. You would be hard pressed to find someone who didn't remember his sense of humor and sweet soul. He is fondly remembered by all as a kind, generous, and thoughtful man—devoted to his family and friends. Roger enjoyed cooking but not as much as eating, (he would have preferred "pasta-way" to "passed away"). He especially loved going out to breakfast with his friends and chatting for hours while sipping coffee and making memories. Husband, father, friend, confidant, father-in-law, surrogate father, volunteer, comedian; Roger touched so many lives. Sharing his time and kind heart with others was important to him. He volunteered at Anna Jaques Hospital in Newburyport, Mass., delivered for Meals on Wheels in West Newbury, and most recently he helped out at Tidewell Hospice House in Ellenton, Fla. Fittingly, Roger was under the care of the wonderful nurses and doctors of Tidewell during his last month of life. Roger is survived by his wife, Janet; his daughter, Lisa Wallace and her husband Keith Wallace of Reading, Mass.; his son William Maffei of East Boston, Mass.; and his sister, Rosemary Joyce of North Reading, Mass. In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation in Roger's name to Tidewell Hospice Foundation at www.tidewellfoundation.org. A memorial service will be planned for later this year. Forever loved, always missed, never forgotten. We love you, Roger!
