#PastaWeek – Healthy Penne Arrabiata

Hello guys! Hope you are enjoying this pasta week as much as we are enjoying sharing it with you – let us know what was your favorite recipe from this week so far?

Today we are sharing this penne arrabiata. The sauce is generally packed with chilli oil that can make this recipe really high calories. However we are using a special spice: Harissa!


This is a game changer you guys – you HAVE to try this recipe ❤️.


For the sauce

1 aubergine

50ml tomato sauce

1 garlic clove

1 tbsp harissa

For the pasta 

85g wholewheat penne pasta


Cut your aubergine in half and put it in a pan with boiling water for 5 mins.

Get it out and cut it into 3 cm cubes. Transfer into a frying pan.

Cook on medium heat and add your tomato sauce and garlic clove while stirring frequently.

Cook and let simmer for about 10 mins until the aubergines get soft.

Transfer the sauce into the cooked penne.

Sprinkle with some chilli oil and optional cheese and dive in ❤️.


Your pasta is ready to be enjoyed 😉.

Until the next recipe,
