Parmigiana alla Melanzane

Parmigiana Alla Melanzane! It’s like a song to my ears πŸ˜‚ Everytime I went to an Italian restaurant, it was the first thing I’d order, until I started making it πŸ€—

What’s your favorite Italian dish?

Ingredients for 2 large trays:
β—‡ 3 large eggplants.
β—‡ 7 tomatoes.
β—‡ 1 small onion.
β—‡ 1 small can of strained tomato.
β—‡ 1/4 cup of olive oil.
β—‡ 1 tsp of sugar.
β—‡ 2 tsps of salt.
β—‡ Sprinkle of pepper.
β—‡ Canole oil.
β—‡ Grated parmesan cheese.
β—‡ Mozarella cheese slices.
β—‡ Emmental cheese.

Method:
β—‡ Peel and cut the eggplants into 1 cm thick round pieces. Place them in a cooking tray and spread canole oil over each slice on both sides. Place them in the oven for about 40 mins at 180Β°C all the while flipping them at approximetaly 20 mins of the cooking time. They should be gold and tender on each side.
β—‡ In a sauce pan, fry the sliced onions with the olive oil until tender and gold. After cutting and mixing the tomatoes in a food processor, add it to the fried onion. Let boil for 5 minutes.
β—‡ Add the sugar, salt, pepper and strained tomato. Leave to boil for 5 minutes all the while mixing.

Layering:
β—‡ In a cooking tray add the soft eggplants then cover them with the red sauce and two kinds of cheese (preferably mozarella and emmental).
β—‡ Repeat once again and this time cover with the 3rd cheese (parmesan).
β—‡ Place in the oven for about 10 minutes. Or until the cheese melts, then turn on the top of the oven for about 7 minutes until the top cheese melts and becomes golden.

You can always bake the 2 trays, eat one instantly and place the other in the freezer for next time.
