Recipe Details

Story

Alla norma is a style of pasta sauce native to the Italian island of Sicily. Slow-roasted eggplant is folded into a tomato sauce with onion, garlic, and basil. It’s tossed with corkscrew-shaped cavatappi noodles, ideal for scooping up every saucy bite. And since no pasta would be complete without a little cheese, a creamy whipped ricotta is dolloped overtop.
