Pasta with eggplant in white

Pasta with white eggplant or with "white eggplant": that's how we call this recipe in the family, in the sense that the sauce is made with fried eggplant without tomato. And so in white. A little’ fresh basil, a grind of black pepper and pecorino cheese or Parmesan Reggiano grated and that's it.

The recipe of pasta with eggplant in white seems simple and its realization really is, but the taste is amazing. Is’ one of the most traditional dishes of the area of Sicily of which are native to, the Sicilian. Try it and see if it is not true that simplicity is charged. This enhances the aubergines, their sweetness and slightly bitter ending. While in other more famous recipes, as the pasta alla Norma in the original recipe catanese and in many other, the fried eggplant is paired with tomato, that a little bit’ covers its flavor.

Surely the aubergines are, in summer, the vegetable symbol of Sicilian cuisine and I invite you to take a look at all my RECIPES WITH EGGPLANT. You'll find starters, first dishes, delicious and delicious unique dishes such as EGGPLANT MEATBALLS, even in VIDEO RECIPE. Have a good day.

Hello Daniela, and welcome. You're right to sell, I usually put the ricotta salata or even baked ricotta typical Sicilian. But many say they don't lie, so I suggest a cheese spread everywhere. Then if you like me are lucky to have them in the House take advantage and abounds! Hello, ADA

Hello, Ada 🙂 thank you for answering me. I love to cook and especially our colourful “kitchen”. Have you ever tried to send a “norm” in the form of a doughnut, I mean’ using a mold washing and wrapping the pasta to “norm”, in long Eggplant slices? I think it's a “Chicca” 🙂
