Pasta 'ncasciata

Today is turning 7 and we celebrate it with a typical Sunday one-meal-dish from Messina but well know and appreciated in the whole Siciliy, Pasta 'ncasciata. Allegedly being Inspector Montalbano's (Andrea Camilleri most famous fictional character) favorite meal, became very famous outside the island. 
The recipe is a bit long, but not complicated; we take the time making it, as a celebration of life in these hard and uncertain times. Probably this will be the last Shelter-in-pasta as you know it, stay tuned...

Ingredients: rigatoni, ground meat, eggplant, eggs, tomato sauce, prosciutto cotto (or mortadella), caciocavallo, onion, peas, breadcrumbs, olive oil, and fresh music.

Buon ascolto e buon appetito.
