Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Cut off the bottoms and stems of the eggplants. Peel them using a vegetable peeler and slice them into 1/2-inch slices.

In a heavy bottomed pan heat some olive oil and fry the eggplant slices for about 4 to 5 minutes (if you prefer a healthier version of the dish, you can grill the eggplants). Place the cooked slices on some paper towels to drain any excess oil.

In a large bowl combine the butter, freshly grated Parmesan, and salt, to taste. Add the roughly shredded fresh basil leaves.

Place the angel hair pasta or spaghetti into a pan of boiling water, bring back to the boil and cook until al dente. Drain.

Add the cooked pasta into the big bowl with the butter mixture and combine.

Take a small portion of the pasta and place it on top of an eggplant slice. Roll the eggplant around the pasta and place it in an oven-proof dish. Repeat this process with all the eggplants slices.

Pour some pureed tomato sauce, or passata, over the eggplant rolls. Place slices of cacioavallo on the top. Finally cover the dish with more freshly grated Parmesan.

Place the dish in oven for around 20 minutes, or until sauce is bubbly.

    Just an observation, watching the show it did NOT show any sauce being added to the angle hair pasta before it was put on top of the eggplant, but when the camera showed the pasta being placed on top of the eggplant before rolling it up, it definitely had been mixed in sauce; it was red!

    There needs to be more attention paid to the details.

    This was a great recipe. My husband does not usually like Eggplant but when I made it this way he loved it. I will make it again.

    I prepared this for a housefull of young ladies who loved it. Substituted mozzarella for the caciocavella and handmade spinach angel hair pasta. Tasted great!! I would definitely make this again for a special occasion.
