Method: 
Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over high heat. Add eggplant, celery, bell pepper, onion, carrot, Italian seasoning, fennel seed, chile flakes and garlic, and cook until the vegetables begin to soften and brown around the edges, about 5 minutes, adding a little water if needed to prevent sticking. Add tomatoes and tomato juice and continue to cook until the tomatoes soften and the mixture thickens slightly, about 3 minutes longer. Add pasta, spinach, basil, and salt and cook 1 to 2 minutes longer to heat through.
