Eggplant Parmesan is one of my favorite dishes.
On our recent trip to the Abruzzo region, Jeff and I had the opportunity to hang around the kitchen of the agriturismo where we stayed and watch as they prepared our meals.
This eggplant dish is so simple, straight forward, and delicious.
Naturally, there are variations to this dish -- some will bread the eggplant, some will lightly salt the eggplant to release moisture before frying.
My Sicilian friend tells me in Sicily hard boiled eggs and prosciutto cotto or mortadella are added.
I haven't tried this Sicilian version, but it sounds pretty tasty.
In the meantime, I am adding this eggplant parmesan to my "dinner rotation"!
