Eggplant Parmigiana

This typical Italian dish is so flavorful! It does take some preparation time and a few extra steps, but it is
totally worth it! It consists of layers of eggplant with tomato sauce, basil, mozzarella and Parmesan
cheese. This is one of those dishes I never grow tired of!

The first step is to thinly slice and fry the eggplants. This is the most time-consuming task in the whole
recipe, the rest is super quick and simple, especially if you have made the tomato sauce ahead. I usually
have some frozen sauce in the freezer for such occasions.

Assembling the dish is really easy, all you have to do is alternate eggplant slices with tomato sauce, basil
leaves, mozzarella and grated Parmesan cheese, and then cover the whole dish with more grated
Parmesan that will bubble and turn golden in the oven. Absolutely to die for!

It can be used as a side for meats, which is the way I like it, or it can very well be a main dish on its own,
together with a green salad.
