I think I've shared my love of eggplant before. Besides being hearty and delicious, you can do so many different things with it! And....because I love it, it makes a pretty regular appearance on our dinner table in various forms. Two of my favorites are Eggplant Parmesan Stacks and Caponata. You definitely will want to give those recipes a try!
All over southern Italy, the name "parmigiana" refers to a dish of vegetables layered with tomato sauce and cheese and baked in the oven. Now, for those of you who have an aversion to the "red sauce", typically used in these dishes, this is the recipe for you! It has no tomatoes, but all the meaty eggplant and gooey cheese you'd expect from an eggplant parmesan! Serve it with a nice salad and a crusty loaf of bread and you've got a great dinner! Or, it would also make a nice vegetable side dish to serve alongside some grilled meat.
