How to cook pasta al forno


put in a large pot 2 liters of tomato sauce and 1 cup. of water, 1 full peeled onion, 4 spoons of extravirgin olive oil, some basil leaves and a teaspoon of salt and let cook for 1,5 hours

In the meantime prepare the meatballs: mix together minced meat, 1 egg, the grated cheese, the breadcrumbs, salt pepper and some nutmeg if you like

Create the smallest meatballs you can make and put them to cook in the tomato sauce for 30 minutes

Take a couple of big round violet aubergines, peel them and cut into slices of half an inch

Pass the aubergine slices into flour, then into a beaten egg and fry them in abundant oil

Cook the whole packet of pasta in abundant salted boiling water for just 3 minutes, drain it and mix with a cup of tomato sauce

Finally cut the provola into tiny cubes...

...do the same for the ham...

And for mortadella

Finally we put all together: in a baking tin put some sauce with meatballs and add a layer of fried aubergines

add a layer of pasta, other sauce and a mix of provola ham and mortadella. Repeat the layers until you end ingredients finishing with aubergines and tomato sauce

Finish cooking in the oven at 180 celsius degrees for 30 minutes, then decor with basil leaves and grated parmesan. Serve at least 30 minutes after taking the tin out of the oven. Enjoy it!
