Simple, tasty, and one of our most requested pastas. We prefer to make this with the sweeter Japanese eggplant, but it could be made with globe eggplant too. This pasta is named after Bellini’s opera, Norma, and is she popular! Bellini was born in Catania. A case of local boy making good and the local opera heroine honored with a pasta named after her.
