Winter Warmer Winner - Melanzane Alla Parmigiana
4 Large Aubergines
1 Jar of Tomato sauce
Half onion (diced)
3 tablespoons olive oil
125 gr. Parmisan cheese
250 gr. Mozzarella
Salt & pepper
Slice the aubergines lengthwise , sprinkle with salt and leave them for 1 hour (this ensures the aubergines are not soaked with oil when frying).
Dry off the aubergines, dust them with flour and fry them.
Let them drip-dry on kitchen paper.
In the meantime you need to prepare the tomato sauce.
Pour the olive oil into a pan, add the onion, a sprig of parsley and fry for a few minutes. Add the tomato sauce and cook for 20 minutes. Add the basil during the last five minutes.
Cover the bottom of a deep oven dish with the tomato sauce.
Place one layer of aubergines over entire dish area, cover again with tomato sauce, add parmisan cheese and mozzarella. Repeat this process until all the aubergines have been used.
Place in the oven at 180°C for 30 minutes. Serve hot with ciabatta bread
