Eggplant Parmigiana is a typical Neapolitan recipe, even if by now quite common, with some variants, all over southern Italy.
Eggplant Parmigiana is THE Parmigiana, but we also make Parmigiana with different vegetables, like courgette (zucchini) or bell peppers, just slightly overlapping the slices like the louvers in a window shutter, making layers alternated with other ingredients.
Somebody uses to fry eggplants after passing them in a beated egg. Somebody else prefers a more dietetic variant, with grilled eggplants. I’ve tasted different recipes, and even if I liked them all, none beats this one! But, of course, it’s just a matter of taste 😉 I’ll leave you to the recipe, as we make it at my home: if you try it, let me know your opinion!
