Eggplant Parmigiana

You can’t say no to Eggplant Parmigiana .  You can fry or grill  the eggplant. If you fry them the final result will be more interesting.

Even today  the origins of this recipe are discussed. Someone says it  comes from Naples , someone from Sicily  and someone Parma. In the end  we don′t worry about it because we are happy to say that eggplant parmigiana is a recipe loved in the world.

As always i recommend you to use  first quality  and fresh products   whose origin is Italian and certified. Eat less but eat better i will always tell you.

This recipe is for  one oven pan Parmigiana but i love preparing the  single-serve. The method  is the same  you have to cut the aubergines with the dough cutter and use it to make  the single-serve and then cook it
