This delectably-simple, spicy pasta dish is the perfect choice when you're pressed for time but still want to eat something healthy and delicious.
- 300 g penne
- 2 aubergines
- 400 ml chopped plum tomatoes
- 3 garlic cloves
- 2 chillies
Cut aubergines and blanch them in boiling
water for 5 minutes. Blanching will soften the aubergines, making them tender
and succulent. Cook penne to your desired consistency and slice chillies into
thin strips, discarding the seeds if you want to reduce heat. Peel and finely
slice garlic cloves. Heat a pan with 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Fry the
aubergines and garlic and season before adding the chillies and chopped plum
tomatoes. Finally add cooked penne and fry for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Garnish with basil and grated mozzarella for an authentic Italian touch.
