Portions 2
  • 220 grams spaghetti (or whatever kind of pasta you have)
  • 1 eggplant (cut in cubes)
  • 8 cherry tomatoes (cut in half)
  • 1 teaspoon of tomato sauce
  • 2 cloves of garlic (cut in slices)
  • salt (preferably)
  • pepper (preferably)
  • oregano (preferably)
  • chili flakes (preferably)
  • 1 tablespoon of vinegar (optionally)
  • olive oil (preferably)
  • fresh basil (as much as you want)
  1. Add a lot of water in a pot and let it boil.
  2. Add the cut eggplants in a colander bowl, season them with salt and let them aside for 10-15 minutes.
  3. Add olive oil in a frying pan, let it heat well and sautée the eggplants for 10 minutes, on high heat.
  4. Add the garlic and sautée it slightly for a few seconds.
  5. Spice with oregano and chili flakes.
  6. Next, add the tomato sauce, heat it and add the cherry tomatoes.
  7. Add hot water, just enough to not completely cover them.
  8. Let it boil and lower the heat, on low to medium, cover lid and cook for 12 minutes.
  9. Meanwhile, boil the pasta.
  10. Once the sauce is ready, add basil, vinegar and adjust to your tastes with salt and pepper.
  11. When the pasta is boiled, add it in the sauce, mix and add a bit of its liquor, if necessary. This will help for the sauce to become mushy, since we don’t have any cheese.
  12. Serve in a deep plate with basil leaves, pepper and raw olive oil!
