Are you up for Pasta?… have you ever tried Tortiglioni before? This pasta comes from the tubular family like rigatoni and penne but it is mostly used for baked pasta with hidden sauces.

Tortiglioni with Aubergines and Olives is a recipe that I came up with as I wanted to eat something Mediterranean light but not sophisticated. With a couple of fresh ingredients and while the pasta is boiling in the salted water, I will have to be able to manage and cook this sauce. It worked perfectly!

It took me just 12 minutes to cook and finish this Tortiglioni with Aubergines and Olives recipe. A cool thing that many will like is that the mozzarella cubes will melt in your plate while you are eating!
