Alla Norma Pasta Sauce

I love all the ingredients of this sauce, aubergines, chilli, capers and tomato, it is my perfect accompaniment to pasta.

1 aubergine finely chopped
1 onion finely chopped
3 garlic cloves crushed
2 x 400 g can chopped tomatoes
½ tsp oregano
2 tbsp olive oil
Chilli powder to taste
1 tbsp capers chopped
1 tbsp tomato puree
Salt and pepper
1-2 tsp sugar

Serves 4

Put the onion, garlic and oil in a pan and fry for 10 mins, until the onions are soft and translucent.

Add the aubergine and cook for 15 mins, until the aubergine is well cooked, nothing worse than undercooked aubergine, add the tomato puree and cook for another 5 mins.

Add the tomatoes, oregano, chilli, capers and a good grind of salt and pepper and cook for 15-20 mins.   Add the sugar a little at a time, until the acidity of the tomatoes mellows, this is to individual preference, so keep tasting.  Cook for another 5 mins.

Serve over your pasta of choice and your favourite vegan cheese and a good grind of black pepper.
