My favourite dish! Aubergine parmigiana is an excellent way to serve children vegetables. The combination of tomato sauce, basil, cheese and aubergines will melt in your mouth and transport you to Italy in a heartbeat!
Letting the aubergine slices sit with salt releases the bitter juices. If you're pressed for time, you can shorten this to 30 to 60 minutes.
If you can't find Caciocavallo or Caciotta di provola, use Provolone or mozzarella.
My family enjoyed this dish very much. We used our own homemade sauce and I had to sub Mozzeralla for the Caciocavallo due to availability, but it was very flavorful nonetheless. - 27 Sep 2012
