Before you begin this recipe, you'll need to grill or broil a small eggplant and cut it into cubes. You can do this up to a day in advance, if desired, and refrigerate until needed. The eggplant is then cooked along with sliced red onion, canned tuna (preferably packed in oil), white wine, basil, and tomato puree to make a tasty sauce for rigatoni or other short tubular pasta shapes.

Ingredients

  • 350 grams rigatoni pasta
  • 1/2 red onion (sliced finely)
  • 1 eggplant (small, sliced, grilled, and cut into small cubes)
  • tuna packed in oil
  • 3 ounces white wine
  • tomato puree
  • basil leaves
  • salt and ground black pepper
  • extra-virgin olive oil

Directions

  1. Prepare the sauce by sauteing the onion with some olive oil, add the eggplant cubes and the tuna.
  2. Add the wine and allow it to evaporate.
  3. Add the tomato puree and a few basil leaves, season with salt and pepper, and cook for approximately 10 minutes.
  4. In the meantime cook the pasta in a stockpot full of boiling salted water and drain ‘al dente.’
  5. Add the sauce to the pasta, stir well to combine, add a drizzle of olive oil, and serve hot.
