This recipe for trofie pasta with creamed ricotta cheese and aubergine is inspired by the famous Sicilian ‘Pasta alla Norma’, but at the same time reduces the heaviness of the famous recipe as this sauce is lighter and healthier. It’s more delicate, simply made with ricotta cheese and tomato, and flavoured with the addition of some delicious diced aubergine that one only stir-fries for a few minutes. Experience it for yourself, because this simple recipe for pasta with ricotta and aubergine will captivate you! In addition, we recommend parsley, finely chopped, and some parmesan cheese - and if you like spicy flavours, you could also add a good spoonful of peppers in oil.

Put some finely chopped garlic and parsley on to gently fry with a little extra virgin olive oil. Add the diced aubergine and fry over a high heat. Adjust for salt and cook until done. Set aside. Sweat the finely chopped onion in another pan in olive oil. Add the tomatoes, adjust the salt and cook for about ten minutes. At this point remove from the heat, add the ricotta and mix well. Cook the pasta in boiling salted water. Once cooked and drained, mix with the ricotta and tomato sauce. Add the diced aubergine and parmesan to taste, mix well and serve.
