Francesinha – French Girl – is a typical portuguese dish, originally from Oporto.
The legend says that the portuguese emigrant Daniel David Silva, influenced by the croque-monsieur, created this dish baptizing it with this name because the spiciest woman he knew was the french. Later, was created the sauce, a secret recipe that I will share with you!
Sometimes we pretend we know about other cultures when we make a meal. Did you know that the origins of the word picnic are French? My apologies to all French people, I still have a lot to learn! But I do know that dessert is important, so I had to sneak in a few cookies :)
On cold winter days when I don't find much motivation to move to cook something I stick to an easy (and delicious) tomato soup recipe ! Delicious and great for motivation to keep on working through the chilly days of winter.

This is my norma and goat cheese pasta, norma is an Italian sauce made with aubergines, tomato passata and salty ricotta. In this case I tried it with goat cheese, which in my opinion matches perfectly with the other ingredients. The tricks for a good result is to cook really well the aubergines, so as to get rid of the unwanted water that is trapped inside, and they become more tasty. To do this, remember to stir continuosly them otherwise they get burned and the taste is ruined. Then, when you add the tomato passata regulate the taste with a pinch of salt and also sugar, it is essential to balance the tomato acidity (old trick from my grandma!). The goat cheese has to be added at the very end, when the heat is off, because it's a fresh cheese and we don't want it to separate in phases :) (--> if you make the sauce for more than one time, and you want to freeze it, it's advisable to leave it fresh cheese free, and add it always fresh from the fridge).
This is absolutely super tasty, I really recommend it and for any doubt just write me below! Enjoy!
