There is beauty in simplicity. This is probably the best way to explain the Sicilian spaghetti. It is a beautiful, elegant and intricate presentation of a classic Sicilian pasta dish. It is bursting with flavors and each bite is filled with its own punch of taste. The pasta used in this dish is whole-wheat. People with specific dietary needs or conditions can choose to opt for a different kind of pasta.

The eggplant in this dish takes on an amazing texture of its own when properly cooked. The capers and pecorino add a saltiness that compliments the dish almost perfectly when served along with the sweet tomato sauce. For those who prefer the spicier things in life, they can opt for chili flakes to go along with it as well.

Health benefits:

Spaghetti is rich in carbohydrates as well as in fiber, vitamins and minerals. It also provides a dietary fiber that serves as a great preventative against obesity and Type 2 diabetes.
