Pasta Alla Norma from The Italian Dish
I guess I'm still involved in my campaign to get more people to embrace eggplant because I'm spotlighting another delicious-looking eggplant dish for Meatless Monday. I'd just spotted Ricotta Salata over the weekend at my beloved warehouse store, so when Elaine posted this spaghetti dish with eggplant, garlic, red pepper, tomatoes, and oregano topped with Ricotta Salata at The Italian Dish, it immediately went on my personal "must try" list. If you don't have the traditional Ricotta Salata that makes this dish uniquely Sicilian, you could certainly substitute Parmesan or Asiago cheese instead.
