    1. Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a non-stick pan with the crushed cloves of garlic. Add the sliced aubergine and cook over medium heat for just a few minutes so the aubergine retains a bite.
    2. Add the prawns; saut├ę together for few seconds, season with salt and pepper and set aside.
    3. Boil the penne in plenty of boiling water. We recommend using 1 litre of water for every 100g of pasta. Drain the pasta al dente and toss in the pan with the sauce.
    4. Sprinkle with freshly chopped parsley or oregano leaves; drizzle with remaining extra virgin olive oil and serve.
