PASTA ALLA NORMA - (Calabria)



INGREDIENTS: (4 servings)

14 ounces of short pasta
2 eggplants (aubergines)
salted ricotta (whey cheese)
tomato sauce
1/2 onion
1 carrot
Olive Oil
salt

PREPARATION:
- Skin the aubergines, cut them longitudinally in slices, 1/2 inch high;
- Put them in salt, and let them rest fon 1 hour, to make them lose their bitter flavour;
- Passed the hour, warm a frying pan full of oil (peanut oil, it will leave the flavour lighter);
- Wash away the salt;
- Fry the aubergine slices, and put them in a dish, covered with absorbing paper;
- Mince the onion and the carrot, put a little olive oil in another pan, and prepare them with the tomato sauce;
- On this sauce, place the fried aubergines, oil and salt;
- Boil the pasta in abundant salted water, strain it and mix it with the sauce;
- Serve with a lot of grated ricotta.

- CALORIES: 520-540 per serving - TOTAL: At least 2000 calories

ENJOY.

I'll post later the video on YouTube. For now, enjoy the recipe.
