Instructions

1
Coat eggplant in salt and let pieces drain in a colander 15 to 30 minutes or longer. Dry eggplant well with paper towels, pressing to remove moisture.
2
In a skillet, heat about 1/2-inch of olive oil and fry the eggplant until it is soft and lightly browned. Remove the eggplant with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels.
3
Remove all but 2 tablespoons frying oil and discard the rest.
4
Add the garlic to skillet over low heat and cook garlic, pressing it into the oil a couple of times. When garlic begins to color on both sides, remove from pan.
5
Add the tomatoes to the pan and cover. Increase heat to medium-high and cook tomatoes until they fall apart and become saucy, about 8 minutes.
6
While cooking the tomatoes, cook the spaghetti until al dente in salted, boiling water.
7
Just before the pasta is done, add eggplant cubes to tomato sauce. Lower heat and cook gently, still covered, another minute or so.
8
Drain the spaghetti and put it into a warmed serving bowl.
9
Add eggplant, tomato sauce, Italian parsley and mozzarella to pasta and mix well.

Chef's note: Serve with grated pecorino or ricotta salata.
