Pasta with Ricotta and Eggplants


Pasta with Ricotta and Eggplants is a real Sicilian recipe, easy and tasty.

The secret is the ricotta cheese that must be creamy and fresh.

Also the Eggplants are very important, they must be without seeds inside and I always suggest you to peel and slice them and leave in a bowl covered with water and coarse salt. In this way the Eggplants will release the bitter water they have inside.

And now follow me in my kitchen to prepare this recipe in few steps.

Here are the ingredients and the steps. You can find the video recipe in my Instagram page (my profile - highlights) or in my YouTube channel.


  • Penne Pasta
