Roasted parmesan eggplant

Roasted parmesan eggplant

I could have called these roasted parmesan eggplant something like revisited parmesan, don’t you think? I was not sure because it has raw tomatoes, but it is between simple roasted and parmesan ones.

I prepared them because I saw a photo somewhere and loved it. Fortunately I had prepared the skillet eggplant parmesan and repeated the same way to roast them – and I do believe it really makes the difference.

For this recipe, I prefer the buffalo mozzarella – but it will also work with the common one.

Ingredients:

  • 3 medium eggplants
  • 2 mozzarella (3.5 oz each)
  • 2 Tbsp breadcrumbs
  • 2.5 oz grated parmesan cheese
  • 4 big tomatoes
  • 2 small cans of tomato puree
  • basil
  • salt
  • pepper
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • oregano

Instructions:

  1. Turn on the oven 392°F/ 200°C.
  2. Cover the oven pan with parchment paper.
  3. Wash and clean eggplants and cut them in slices of 1/3 in.
  4. Distribute the eggplant slices over the parchment paper without overlapping them. Add salt and pepper. Add breadcrumbs and grated cheese using your fingers, the same way you do to salt.
  5. Cook them until golden.
  6. In the meanwhile, put the tomato puree into a pan with salt, pepper and a thread of extra virgin olive oil. Let it cook until gets dense.
  7. Wash and slice the tomatoes and put the slices into a colander with a pinch of salt to lose part of their water.
  8. Slice the mozzarella too and put them into another colander to lose their liquids. 
  9. Take another oven pan and cover with parchment paper.
  10. Take the eggplant pan from the oven and with a spoon, spread a bit of tomato sauce on each slice of eggplant.
  11. Use some kitchen paper towel to dry the tomato slices.
  12. Make a first line with eggplant slices, then follow with a line of tomatoes and then mozzarella. Repeat until the end of the pan.
  13. Spread some grated cheese over so as oregano.
  14. End with a thread of extra virgin olive oil.
  15. Put in the oven until mozzarella melts.
  16. Buon appetito!
