While the sauce gently simmers, rinse the salt off your aubergine slices and pat them dry. Por about a centimetre (half an inch) of the flavorless oil in a large frying pan, and put over a high heat.

Start to boil a large pan of salted water for the fresh pasta.

Dredge the aubergine slices through the nondairy milk and the dread crumbs. You want to try and coat the aubergine as fully as possible with the crumbs. When the oil is very hot, fry the slices (not too many at once), gently lowering and removing them from the oil when golden brown. When you remove slices from the oil, drain on kitchen roll.

When your pasta water is boiling cook your fresh pasta (this usually only takes 2-3 minutes). Drain and coat with tomato sauce. Garnish with ripped up basil leaves and serve with crispy aubergine slices. End.
