  • 1 medium eggplant, cut into batons

  • 1 red capsicum, cut into 1cm cubes
  • 150g onion, cut into 0.5cm cubes
  • 100g baked ricotta cheese
  • 150ml Extra Virgin Olive oil

Instructions

  • TO START

    Bring plenty of water to the boil in a large pot. Once boiling add salt, we recommend 7g of salt per litre of water.

  • COOK THE EGGPLANT

    In a large fry pan, heat ⅔ of the oil over a medium to high heat. Once hot, fry the eggplant until golden. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towel.

  • COOK THE VEGETABLES

       Add onion and capsicum to the fry pan and cook for 3 minutes. Next add the celery, raisins and Napoletana sauce and bring to a simmer. Cook for 5 minutes.

  • COOK THE PASTA

    Drop the Tagliatelle into the boiling water, leave for 2 minutes before stirring, and cook according to the instructions on the packet. Drain the pasta one minute before the suggested cooking time.

  • COMBINE

    Add the pasta and eggplant to the sauce, toss together, then combine with the mint and ricotta and stir for a further minute.

  • SERVE

    Serve the Tagliatelle with a drizzle of Extra Virgin Olive oil, topping with more ricotta cheese flakes, pine nuts and mint.
