Preheat the oven to 200 °C.

In a saucepan, heat the olive oil and sauté the onion for 2 minutes. Add the eggplant, olives and sun-dried tomatoes. Sauté for approximately 8 minutes on high heat. Add the tomato purée and cook for 10 minutes on a medium-low heat. Add a pinch of salt, black pepper and chopped herbs.

Bring 3L water to a boil in a large pot and add salt (10g per litre). Add Tortiglioni Sgambaro and boil for 7 minutes (the pasta will complete cooking once baked in the oven).

Drain Tortiglioni, add to the sauce and mix thoroughly. Add a spoon of Polli oil garlic and chilli peppers. Chop mozzarella and keep aside. Place half the Tortiglioni on a baking sheet, add half the mozzarella and sprinkle with Parmigiano cheese, add some fresh herbs.

Add the remaining Tortiglioni, follow with a final layer of mozzarella, Parmigiano, bread crumbs. Bake for 20 to 30 minutes or until golden brown.
