After three fantastic weeks with family for christmas and friends for new years, normal life has begun again this past monday. I have never liked the weeks after the holidays, because you have to put the christmas tree away and now I have to miss everyone again. But, I will also be starting my new job next week! So this will be very exciting 🙂
Because the past few weeks have been so busy, I did not have the time to write about food. However I did eat fantastic meals! In my upcoming posts I will feature some of these great experiences.
But for now, a post about healthy vegetarian pasta to forget the voracious diners! This pasta was recommended to me by the lovely wife of my landlord. When we went to pick up her mother from the train station, they immediately started talking about food and recipes after they greeted each other. Oh how I love Italians! Although I had just eaten, the recipe sounded delicious, so here it is :-).
2 onions, 1 cloves of garlic, 1 large eggplant or 2 small ones, 2 cans of tomato pulp, 300 g. of whole-wheat (here is the healthy touch!) spaghetti, 1 hand of basil.
Cut the onions and garlic. Put some olive oil in a pan and bake the vegetables until they glaze. Meanwhile cut the eggplant in small pieces and and them to the stir. Cook some water in a pan and add the spaghetti. I added a little guy called ‘Al Dente’ we got as a present! He starts to whistle the Aida after 7 minutes, so we know the pasta is ready 🙂
Serve the spaghetti with the sauce and a few leaves of basil. Buon appetito!
