Pasta with egg plant and tomatoes

Ingredients: 4 persons

Ca 400 gr short pasta (e.g. Penne, rigatoni, fusilli)


Coarse salt

Egg plants

1 l sunflower oil

2 egg plants (to be cut into small squares or into some form of strip, though not too thin – we’ll do it together

Tomato sauce

Ca 4 spoons olive oil extra vergine

1 clove of garlic

1 pinch of chili

Ca 1 teaspoon oregano

Ca 2 spooons capers

Ca 100 gr black olives (with pits)

500 gr pachino tomato (cherry) (to be cut into half)

Once the dish is almost done

Ca 30 gr (chopped) Taleggio eller (grated) Provolone ’medium flavored’

With rewards to both Taleggio and/or Provolone, the very best would have been smoked ricotta. Currently we can’t get it

Ca 30 gr (grated) Grana Padano or Parmigiano Reggiano (preferably aged min 24 months)

What can you do beforehand

Place all the ingrediens on your kitchen table so that you’re set for 5 pm  

Divide them into small islands on the kitchen table, as we have divided into the shopping list above, so that the different things you need to cook stand together and are ready to use

It’s a good idea to

  • Depending on what you can get hold of; chop the taleggio or tear the provolone
  • Grate the Grana Padano/Parmigiano
  • Heat water in a boiler
  • Wash the egg plants
  • Peel the garlic
  • Wash the tomatoes
Pots and pans
  • A pot for the pasta
  • Colander for the pasta
  • Pot for  the sunflower oil
  • Absorbent paper, the egg plants will be fried 
  • Pot for  the tomato sauce
  • Grater for the cheese
