Spaghetti Nests with Eggplants and Mascarpone

I just adore eggplants whether grilled or fried with just a sprinkle of salt. So many ways to enjoy them. In this dish I love how the mascarpone gets warm and gives a subtle sweetness to the whole dish.  Honest food is the best!  Here is the recipe to mascarpone-filled eggplants, topped with mozzarella and parmiggiano on a bed of tomato sauce and little nests of spaghetti.

Ingredients (Recipe for 2)

  • 1 large eggplant, sliced lengthwise
  • 2 to 3 cups of simple marinara sauce (basic tomato sauce with basil or oregano)
  • A couple of tablespoons of mascarpone
  • Mozzarella cheese, grated
  • Parmiggiano, grated
  • Half a pack of spaghetti

Tip: Cook your pasta al dente

Method

  • Grill eggplants and sprinkle with salt. Place a teaspoon of mascarpone on one end of grilled eggplant and roll.
  • Spread some marinara sauce  in the bottom of baking dish and arrange the rolls on top.
  • Cook spaghetti al dente and place in baking dish. Top with mozzarella and parmiggiano. Bake in the oven until cheese is melted. Sprinkle some basil leaves on top and enjoy!!!
