Pasta alla Norma with fried eggplant tomato sauce and ricotta salato typical sicilian pasta

Golossary: Pasta alla Norma

One of Sicily’s best known (and best) pastas is the justly famous dish of pasta (rigatoni is popular, but it could also be busiate or any number of other shapes) tossed with silky fried eggplant, a simple tomato sauce and a generous shaving of salty ricotta salata cheese. The eggplant’s oil adds depth and richness to the otherwise spare dish.
