Heat the oil in a frying pan. Add the garlic, eggplant and capsicum. Cook for a few minutes to soften. Place into a big bowl. Pan-fry the sausage pieces and cook for a few minutes to brown slightly. Add to the bowl and sprinkle over paprika. Combine the ricotta, parmesan and eggs, mixing well. Heat a big pot of salted water to the boil.
