Pici alla Norma
This is a classic dish from Sicily. The fried Aubergine gives it the kick to it. You start by boiling salted water, and in the mean while lets prepare the sauce. Start by cutting julien the Aubergines and season with salt and pepper. In a pan add the olive oil, heat well and add the aubergines, and fry them till golden brown, when done let them sit aside. In the same pan add a clove of garlic, the tomato sauce and season with salt and some basil, let the sauce cook for about 15 minutes. Add the pasta in the boiling water, (Pici are like thick spaghetti made with flour and water) cook for 4-5 minutes, and add the pasta to the sauce with some of the cooking water, saute and add some Pecorino and plate with the aubergines. Enjoy.
