A SICILIAN CLASSIC....PASTA ALLA NORMA / UN CLASSICO SICILIANO ... PASTA ALLA NORMA

Here is the recipe for this popular Sicilian dish:





 
INGREDIENTS:  spaghetti, tomato sauce, ricotta salata, eggplant
 
Cut the eggplant in cubes, put  in a colander and sprinkle with salt. Let  sit about one hour. In the meantime, prepare tomato sauce:  Put sauce in a pan, add  one clove garlic, some basil  leaves,  salt and olive oil.
 
Fry the eggplant in a bit of oil, then drain.  Cook the spaghetti according to package directions, drain. Add the tomato sauce, eggplant, chopped ricotta salata and a few basil leaves.
 
For the sauce, I used MUTTI Passata di Pomodoro

  6. This dish looks absolutely delightfully tasteful and I have never tried this, but would. You look cute with your top and pants - although I couldn't see the pants too well, I liked the pattern. You have a beautiful smile Saucy S :)

  10. Francesca, Good looking entree...except that I've never been able to handle the taste and texture of eggplant. I could do it with zucchini. Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

  14. A me le melanzane piacciono tantissimo, devo proprio provare la ricetta! Quando non c'è il marito, perchè a lui invece non piacciono. Ma forse i genitori...
