Spaghetti alla Norma

Let me start by saying I am so glad I did not sign up for that CSA program. Between my Dad's garden and Jake's Farm Stand I have more than enough veggies to play with.

Tonight's dinner feature's my Dad's white eggplant. This is the first year he has planted this type of eggplant. I love it. The fruit is nice and small and the taste is lighter than the purple eggplant.

We have not had a tomato sauce in some time, okay we usually have sauce once a week so this has been a long stretch for us. I found this recipe, Spaghetti alla Norma.

I followed the recipe but I made one change... I roasted the eggplant instead of frying it. Yes I have said before that fried eggplant tastes great but roasting is much better for you. So I roasted. And I was glad I did. The flavor of this sauce was amazing. The only sound you heard from the table was "Yum!" Just the sauce on the Italian bread was even good. Perhaps that is what I will have for lunch tomorrow!

I almost forgot about the Spaghetti. It was Lidia's Spaghetti. New house pasta!

So what did we have for dinner a year ago?
