Pasta alla norma

This is one of my favourite recipes, I love aubergines and they are meant to be with salted ricotta, they are the perfect combination!


  • Chopped tomatoes, one tin
  • Garlic, one clove
  • Olive oil
  • Rapeseed oil
  • Aubergine, 250 g
  • Salt crystals
  • Pasta rigatoni, 320g


  1. Peel and cut the garlic finely
  2. Warm some oil in a pan and add the garlic
  3. Add the tomatoes and let everything cook for 20 minutes
  4. In the meantime, cut the aubergines in slices of about 3 mm
  5. Leave the slices in a colander, add some salt crystals on every layer and on the last layer add also a pan with water, so that the aubergines lose their bitter water
  6. Leave the aubergines for 40-60 minutes
  7. After this time, add some rapeseed oil in a pan and warm it
  8. Fry the aubergines until they have a lovely golden colour
  9. Cook the pasta
  10. When the pasta is cooked, add the tomatoes and the aubergines
  11. Grate some salted ricotta on top of the pasta
