Pasta alla Norma
with Blistered Tomatoes and Fresh Basil
Pasta alla Norma is a traditional Sicilian dish packed with vegetables. Rounds of eggplant are cooked down until softened and are paired with plenty of blistered tomatoes. When you amp up the veggies, the pasta amount can come down, so we’ve included a whole box of Banza chickpea pasta but feel that half a box is an ample amount. Add olive oil to the skillet as necessary while cooking the eggplant, it will help it brown nicely and add to the texture of the sauce.
