Eggplant Parmesan

Eggplant Parmesan

My to cook/bake list is very very long and it might take a while before I can scratch a dish off the list. Eggplant Parmesan or melanzane alla parmigiana has been on that list for quite some time. Even tough I love eggplant I couldn’t really imagine how this dish would taste.

Now I ask my self what took me so long? Why didn’t I make this sooner? I would have eaten it many times in the meantime.

Although this dish doesn’t have a huge amount of ingredients, I think it’s just as delicious as a lasagna with lots of cheese and creamy bechamel. The flavors just work together. An ultimate comfort food and cuddle in your belly dish.
