Handful fresh basil leaves

(I used ‘Boon Chili ballen‘, because they’re also a bit spicy. Nope not sponsored for this, I just like them)
Prepare the spaghetti as stated on the package.
Cut the aubergine in small pieces. Heat some olive oil in a skillet and shorty fry the aubergine. Add the passata, smoked paprika and chili flakes. Warm for around 5 minutes. Set aside some basil leaves for decoration and finely chopp the other ones.
Fry the chili balls for 4-6 minutes over low fire. Add the basil to the sauce.
Serve the spaghetti with the spicy aubergine tomato sauce and the chili balls.
