Eggplant Fatteh By @mattersofthebelly Bruschetta


  • 400g Fettuccine
  • 1 bunch fresh sage
  • 450g Italian pork sausages, removed from casings
  • 4 tablespoons of Monini Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 2 eschalots, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine
  • 2 cups Mutti Passata
  • 3/4 freshly grated parmesan
  • Coarse sea salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

How to prepare

Bring four litres of water to a boil for the fettuccine. Cook according to packet instructions.

Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a medium frying pan on moderate - high temperature. Once hot, drop one sage leaf in, it should sizzle slightly if hot enough. Add remainder of sage and cook, turning occasionally until they are crisp. Drain them on paper towels, leaving the oil in the skillet.

Add the chopped eschalot to the already warm pan and cook on moderate heat until translucent. Add the sausage mince and stir until browned.

Add Passata and white wine and allow to cook for 10 mins or until sauce has thickened. Season with salt and pepper.

Drain pasta and reserve a 1/2 cup of liquid. Toss through the pork mince and top with crispy sage leaves and freshly shaved Parmesan.
