Eggplant Parmigiana: An Italian Recipe To Enjoy For Dinner


Welcome to the world of Italian cuisine! Today, we'll be learning how to make a classic dish - Eggplant Parmigiana. Get ready to tantalize your taste buds!


First, preheat your oven to 375°F. While it's heating up, slice your eggplants into 1/4 inch rounds. Sprinkle salt on both sides and let them sit for 30 minutes to remove excess moisture.


After 30 minutes, pat the eggplant slices dry and brush them with olive oil. Place them on a baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes, flipping halfway through. This will give them a nice golden color.


While the eggplants are baking, let's make the tomato sauce. Heat olive oil in a pan and sauté garlic and onions until fragrant. Then add in canned tomatoes, salt, pepper, and a pinch of sugar. Let it simmer for 15 minutes.


Now, let's assemble the dish. In a baking dish, spread a layer of tomato sauce, followed by a layer of eggplant slices, and a layer of shredded mozzarella cheese. Repeat until all the ingredients are used up.


Bake the Eggplant Parmigiana for 25 minutes, until the cheese is melted and bubbly. Let it cool for 10 minutes before serving.


While the dish is cooling, let's make the garlic bread. Slice a baguette and spread garlic butter on each slice. Bake in the oven for 10 minutes, until crispy.


Time to plate up! Serve the Eggplant Parmigiana with a side of garlic bread and a sprinkle of fresh basil. Buon appetito!


This dish is perfect for a cozy dinner with loved ones. The combination of crispy eggplant, tangy tomato sauce, and gooey cheese will leave you wanting more.
