Yesterday my mom and I embarked on our annual Christmas shopping extravaganza. When I got home SP had started dinner - eggplant Parmesan.
He enlisted my help in breading and frying the eggplant, which came out a nice, golden-brown color. They looked so good it was hard not to just start dipping the slices into the rich tomato sauce he'd made.
We had a ton of eggplant so we filled one casserole dish with a layer of tomato sauce and eggplant topped with grated Pecorino and shredded mozzarella. It came out of the oven all bubbly and brown around the edges:
... and was so good we ate the whole thing for dinner last night. The rest of the eggplant and sauce went into another casserole dish, this time layered like a lasagna with sauce, eggplant, cheese, sauce, eggplant, cheese. We'll have that for dinner Monday night.
