|Parmigiana di Melanzane
|Recipe contributed by my wife Judy Perin
- 2 medium eggplants
- 1/4-1/2 cup olive oil
- 2 cup tomato sauce
- 12 oz. mozzarella thinly sliced
- 1/2 cup grated romano cheese
|Cut the top & bottom off of each eggplant. Slice the eggplant into 1/4 inch pieces. Sprinkle each side with salt & place them on a platter or in a colander with a plate underneath. Let stand for approximately 30 minutes. This will help eliminate most of the moisture. Rinse each slice and pat them dry. Dredge each slice in flour & shake off the excess. In a skillet heat oil. Place a single layer of eggplants in the skillet and fry until each side has turned brown. Drain slices by placing them on a paper towel. Rub a shallow 2 quart baking dish with oil. Pour about 1/4 of an inch of sauce in the baking dish. Add a layer of eggplant slices then a layer of mozzarella. Top this with some of the grated cheese. Repeat this process with another layer or two. You want to end with a layer of sauce, mozzarella and then romano cheese. Place dish in a preheated 350 degree oven for approximately 40 minutes. Oven temperatures may vary so make sure the sauce is bubbling & the cheese has melted.
