Pasta alla Norma is a perfect recipe to prepare in advance as lunch for 7p. Chop 1 kilo of eggplant in small cubes. Put on baking paper on an oven tray. Spread some olive oil and roast in the oven at 200° for approximately 30 minutes, until ready. Stir now and again. Chop 1 onion, 4 garlic cloves and 1 chili. Fry in some olive oil. Add 2 cans of passata and 3 table spoons of sundried oregano leaves. Allow to simmer for 20 mins. Stir regularly. Add pepper and salt. Mix the tomato sauce with the eggplant and 2 table spoons of chopped black olives.
Boil 300 grams of dried pasta in salted water until almost al dente. Drain and keep some of the cooking water.
