How to make eggplant Parmigiana
Cut the aubergines into slices; put them in layers in a colander and place the colander in a salad bowl that can contain it.
Sprinkle some coarse salt between one layer and another of aubergines, place a plate on the layers of aubergines and a weight on the plate.
After at least an hour the aubergines will have lost their vegetation liquid and will be less bitter.
In the meantime you will have prepared the sauce (see "Gnocchi al forno" sauce).
Rinse the aubergines under running water to remove excess salt, squeeze them without breaking them and dry them with absorbent paper. In a pan, heat the oil (seed oil for frying) and fry the malanzane, a few at a time. Place them to dry on a plate with absorbent paper to remove excess oil.
Put a ladle of sauce in an oven pan and make a first layer of aubergines, sauce, mozzarella cut into slices or diced and grated cheese. Continue like this until the pan is full.
Finish by covering everything with the sauce and a final sprinkling of grated cheese. Pass in the oven (or electric oven) at 200 ° for half an hour, until you see a golden crust on the surface. Let yours cool for 5 minutes and ... .. ENJOY YOUR MEAL!
WINE TO MATCH: To accompany the eggplant Parmigiana, a red wine from Campania such as the “Campi Flegrei rosso” or a “Solopaca rosso” is suitable, and the pairing with Piedirosso is also excellent.
