#PastaToscana Discover how to prepare Penne with eggplant caponata

Pasta with eggplant caponata is a first course dish that takes us directly, at least with our imagination, to the warm and sunny island of Sicily.

In fact, caponata is a typical Sicilian recipe based on fried vegetables seasoned with tomato sauce, celery, onions, olives and capers. Its main characteristic is the sweet and sour sauce.

It’s practically a side dish, but nothing forbids us to use it as seasoning for our pasta, just like we’ll do in this case.

preparation Penne with eggplant caponata

First of all you have to prepare the caponata. Clean and chop the carrot and celery. Cook them in boiling water for about 10 minutes.

Cut the eggplant into small pieces (without peeling it) and chop the onion.

Pour the tomato sauce in a pot and add a pinch of salt, a drizzle of oil and the dried oregano. Cover and let simmer for 10 minutes.

Brown the onion in hot oil and add the eggplant. Let cook for about 3 to 4 minutes.

Then add all the other ingredients including the tomato sauce. Pour 1/2 a glass of hot water and let cook for another 20 minutes.

Cook the pasta in salted boiling water until cooked al dente. Drain well and add to the seasoning.

Toss and serve with fresh basil leaves.
