Pasta Alla Norma is the ultimate Sicilian pasta dish, characterized by sweet tomato sauce and savory, crispy eggplants. So beloved and delicious, according to food historians, the dish got its name from an Italian writer exclaiming “This is a real Norma!,” meaning masterpiece, when he tried it. This version amps up the cheesy and crispy aspect by baking it all on a baking sheet; all of the exposed surface area coated in cheese makes every bite perfection.

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. Spread the eggplant on a rimmed baking sheet and toss with the olive oil. Roast the eggplant until tender and lightly golden, about 25 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, in a large bowl combine the sauce, oregano, red pepper flakes, basil and 1 cup of parmesan cheese. Set aside.
  4. Bring a large pot of water to a boil over high heat. Season generously with salt. Cook the pasta until almost al dente, about 10 minutes. Add 3/4 cup of pasta water to the jar that the sauce was in and use the water to get all of the extra sauce. Add the saucy pasta water to the bowl with the other ingredients. Using a pasta spider, remove the pasta directly to the bowl with the sauce and toss well to combine. Stir in the eggplant and return the mixture to the already oiled sheet pan. Spread evenly on the pan and sprinkle with the mozzarella cheese and remaining 1 cup parmesan. Bake until the edges are golden brown and the cheese is melted, about 25 to 30 minutes. Cut into squares and serve.
