Step 1

Here are the four easy steps of the pasta with eggplant and non-alcoholic vodka:

Step 2

Cut Eggplant into 1 cm wide chunks and stir fry in a pan with EVOO until golden for approx.10 mn and set aside.

  • Eggplant
  • EVOO (extra virgin olive oil)

Step 3

Start with preparing the “soffritto” or “brunoise”: slice the baby onion and chop finely. In a pan, heat up some E.V.O.O and cook the baby onion until it turns transparent. As soon as it achieves a golden colour, deglaze with vodka on a high heat and let evaporate.

  • Baby onion
  • EVOO

Step 4

Pour in the tomato pulp and reduce the sauce on a low heat, adjust salt. Mix with the cream and stir until obtaining a creamy and soft texture .

  • Tomato pulp
  • salt
  • cream

Step 5

Bring a large pot of water to a boil, add salt and cook pasta according to package directions. Drain when “al dente” and whisk into the pan with the sauce. Stir fry the eggplant with soy sauce at the last minute, right before serving, and fold in the pan with the sauce and pasta. Sprinkle black pepper and serve immediately.
