Step by step

Serve the pasta accompanied by the fried aubergine and seasoned with some grated savoury ricotta and a dash of olive oil.

Tips
Ideally, a proper plate of Pasta alla Norma should be made with spaghetti: in fact, shorter pasta – such as tortiglioni – are fine as a substitute.
Trivia
The curious Italian name of this dish has its roots in the musical world and, more specifically, derives from the opera Norma by Vincenzo Bellini.
