Lisa's Italian Food Recipes
Eggplant Parmesan

This is one of my favorite recipes of all time, and I eat it quite a lot. Fully vegetarian if you have friends over, and great for leftovers!

1 medium eggplant sliced
1 egg
2 tablespoons milk
Italian bread crumbs
Olive oil
6 ounces Chianti
6 ounces tomato paste
1/4 tsp oregano
1 clove of garlic, crushed
1/8 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
1/2 pound mozzarella, sliced
1 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese

Wash the eggplant and slice it into rings around 1/2" thick. Mix together egg and milk, and dip slices of eggplant into this. Next coat with the bread crumbs until well coated.

Grease a cookie sheet with the oil, and layer the eggplant slices onto it. Add more oil on top. Bake for 15 minutes at 400F, flip then bake on the other side.

Mix together Chianti (or another red wine) and tomato paste. Add in oregano, garlic, salt and pepper. Put the slices of eggplant into a baking dish, pour sauce onto each slice. Now put mozarella on top of each. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese over the top and cook for 20 minutes at 400F.

Please roam through the recipes I have on line, and see what sounds good to you and your family. Italian is one of the most versatile styles of food there is. You can create a delicious comfort food to soothe, or an intricate dish to relish. You can light the candles and serve the chicken cacciatore, or you could invite over the family for a big dish of lasagne. And in between are the easy to make casual dinners that are healthy and great tasting. Italian truly offers something for everyone. Enjoy!
