Spaghetti Alla Norma

Recipe by Pinay0618

A Cooking Light recipe of a classic Sicilian pasta sauce. I've got eggplants and tomatoes planted this year and can't wait to make this!

This was absolutely delicious!!! My husband and I enjoyed this so much! And it made a ton, enough to feed us both for dinner for 3 days! We like garlic a lot, so we used 5 cloves of garlic, roma/plum tomatoes and eggplant from the farmers market, and whole wheat thin spaghetti. It was so easy to make, and so good! I did add some dried basil since I ran out of fresh. I had a little less than 1/4 c. of fresh, and about 1 tsp of dried. It was very fresh and comforting. I swear, fresh mozzarella really makes a difference in flavor compared to pre-shredded. Thank you for posting this awesome recipe!
