CREAMY EGGPLANT SPAGHETTI

Tomorrow I will post the roundup of the Heart of the Matter #7 but today you have to content yourselves with a comfort food dish. Do you feel that you need something creamy with a mild but flavourful taste? Make yourself a plate of Creamy Eggplant Spaghetti and let it calm your nerves. And what is left of the eggplant cream you can enjoy on some bread later. I like the taste of eggplant and I have kept this simple just because of that. I sprinkled finely chopped rosemary over it before serving but besides that there’s only a little peperoncino, garlic, salt and extra virgin olive oil, feel free to add your favourite herb if you like! I’m sorry about the photos, I had to do them inside the kitchen and I’m really disturbed by the lightning, sorry to be whiny but I need to say it! I probably need to eat some of this to be more zen.

CREAMY EGGPLANT SPAGHETTI

Eggplant
Garlic
Peperoncino
(A fresh herb of you liking if you feel like it)
Salt
Extra virgin olive oil

- Dice the eggplant and braise it together with the crumbled peperoncino and finely chopped garlic in some olive oil.
- Braise it until the eggplant is soft and a bit golden. Don’t forget to add salt.
- Mix or blend it all until creamy.
- Cook the pasta and when it’s almost ready you put the eggplant cream, as much as you think you need, in a small pan, add some of the pasta water to make it a bit more liquid and heat it up.
- Add it to the drained pasta and mix well.
