Parmigiana di Melanzane is a baked dish comprised of sliced eggplant fried in batches, and layered with a rich tomato sauce, pecorino, mozzarella and Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese.
It is a hearty Italian dish which can be served as a main, or an accompaniment to a meat entrée.
The sharp, pungent flavour of the Pecorino Romano, and rich, nutty flavour of the Parmigiano-Reggiano lend very well to the dish, along with the Dal Molise Bufala Mozzarella, imported from Italy, and made with 100% domestic water buffalo milk, which produces a delightful creamy texture – you’ll appreciate the difference it makes overall.
These three cheeses, coupled with the tomato sauce and eggplant render a brilliant, scrumptious dish – it's no wonder why this is one of the most well-known and enjoyed Italian meals.
Best served with a glass of red wine.
