I’ve been reading the Inspector Montalbano mysteries set in Sicily and enjoying not only his exploits but his eating. In one novel he enthusiastically eats Pasta alla Norma, which the author Andrea Camerili describes as pasta with tomato sauce, fried eggplant, ricotta salata, and fresh basil. Since I had an eggplant and ricotta salata in the house that needed to be used (the ricotta salata had begun to show a bit of mold), I entered “recipe pasta alla Norma” into Google and found numerous recipes. What I have submitted here is the main recipe without the eggplant. It is easy and delicdious.
