Pasta alla Norma

One if the good things you have when your Italian friends are visiting you, is that you will have for sure nice pasta dishes!
The dinner time is maybe a little bit later if you are used to eat early like me, and you have also to workout more later in gym πŸ˜‰ but the nice evening with good food is worth it!! πŸ™‚
So yesterday we had Pasta Norma which is a Sicilian dish with a lot of eggplants and self made tomato sauce!!

You need:
β€’ Pasta
β€’ eggplants
β€’ tomatoes
β€’ olives
β€’ capers
β€’ basil
β€’ spring onions
β€’ garlic
β€’ olive oil
β€’ salt, pepperoni

First cut the eggplant and put it for around 20 minutes in a bowel of water to get the bitter taste out of it!
Dry them later good otherwise they will burn while frying.
After frying then a while put also garlic, onion, olives and capers inside for also fry, of course cut!
Later put all on a plate and put the tomatoes into the remaining oil for cook it till you get a nice sauce! After this mix all together and add basil and spices and last but not least mix also the pasta with the whole sauce and its ready to serve!!

This is a great dish!! Thanks to our chef Zeno!! πŸ™‚
