Pasta Alla Norma (Sicilian Eggplant Pasta)

Pasta Alla Norma is a Sicilian recipe of pasta in marinara sauce flecked with cubes of eggplant and basil. The recipe stays naturally vegan till the very finish when it’s showered with strips of ricotta salata, a salty cheese. However you do not want cheese to gild the deliciousness of this easy but complexly flavored pasta dish. Do that recipe now or the following time you want a scrumptious dinner in a rush!
