I like Mediterranean cuisine. Pasta I made yesterday was a variation of pasta I have eaten at my Italian friend's house.
200 dried penne;
1 or 2 tomatoes,
1 cup of tomato passata;
15 basil leaves;
2 teaspoon olive oil;
grated Grana Padano
some fresh herbs ( oregano, marjoram, coriander)
1 crushed garlic clove
1. Aubergine: cut off the cap and stem, slice it in aprox. 1 cm slices, cut in half every slice, then sprinkle with salt, let stand about 10 minutes, rinse. Place on the hot grill for aprox 20 minutes turning once.
2. Pasta: cook the pasta according to the packet instruction until al dente, drain.
3. Sauce. Roughly chop tomatoes, heat the olive oil, add crushed garlic and tomatoes, fry for a while, add already grilled aubergine, add tomato passata, season lightly with salt.
4. Place the pasta on a plate, then top it with generous amount the sauce with tomatoes and aubergine, then sprinkle with herbs and Grano Padano, garnish with basil leaves.
