Pasta alla Norma

This usually has chunks of mozzarella in but I’ve switched it up to sprinkle it over the top so you could either use the mozzarella as your healthy extra A or as syns.

serves 4-6

500g pasta

1 large onion and garlic clove finely diced,

1 large aubergine in small chunks,

2 cans chopped tomatoes

handful roughly chopped basil

salt, pepper and low-calorie spray.

70g reduced fat mozzarella

Preheat your oven to 200C

  1. Spray the aubergine chunks with low-calorie spray (I suggest lining the tray with non-stick paper ) and bake for 20 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, fry your onions until they are soft (3-5 minutes).
  3. Add your garlic, a pinch of salt and pepper and stir for a couple of minutes or until you can smell the garlic.
  4. Cook your pasta according to instructions and add the tinned tomatoes to the onions and garlic and simmer for 10 minutes. (your aubergine should be done)
  5. Turn off the heat, Stir in the aubergine, basil and aubergine, sprinkle over the mozzarella and put a lid on until the cheese melts.
