La Parmigiana di Melanzane


Baked Aubergine with Cheese and Tomato

I’ve never known whether this dish is called ‘parmigiana’ because it comes from Parma, or because it’s made with Parmesan cheese. It is originally from Sicily, but it is cooked all over Italy and can be an excellent vegetarian main course. I’ve changed the classic recipe slightly. You can use courgettes instead of the aubergines.
