The goodness of aubergines combined with tomatoes and salted ricotta cheese makes this Sicilian dish a real must!
If you have ever been to Sicily, you might have tried this amazing traditional pasta dish, called 'Pasta alla Norma' which comes in various shapes, but follows strict and old rules when it comes to the ingredients.
It is said that this amazing dish was invented on December 26, 1831, when Vincenzo Bellini's ‘Norma’ debuted for the first time at the Teatro alla Scala in Milan.
Apparently a Sicilian chef created a dish for the occasion, inventing one of the most iconic pasta dishes in the country.
Such an important dish deserves to be paired with a particular, and obviously Sicilian, wine - Filippo Bartolotta pours a beautiful glass of Floramundi by Donnafugata.
Pasta alla Norma Ingredients:
Ingredients for 2 servings:
1 medium eggplant
250 gr peeled tomatoes
200 gr dry pasta
