Pasta alla Norma
This is an original recipe given to me from Sicilian relatives. Pasta is tossed with a simple tomato sauce, then topped with fried eggplant, ricotta salata, and hot peppers. The cut of pasta is not too important, it is good even with spaghetti.
Recipe Summary test
Tortiglioni pasta may be substituted for the penne.
If you can't find salted ricotta, try Pecorino Toscano or Pecorino Romano.
