Finally, it’s time for eggplants! I am very happy about that because I love eggplants. My son thinks otherwise because he doesn’t like this sort of vegetable. However, I make them at least for me and my husband.

Today I have for you a traditional dish of Naples! A delicious eggplants parmigiana Naples style!

Eggplants parmigiana Napoli! Such a delicious traditional dish from Naples! If you love eggplants, delicious tomato sauce, mozzarella and basil then this casserole is absolutely for you! Really easy recipe!

This casserole has a tradition in my family because my Nonna (grandmother) has always made it and my mum still makes this dish with eggplants from her garden! I don’t tell you how good they are!

Well, I prepare parmigiana, too. Now there are several ways to prepare a parmigiana.

In many recipes, as well as in traditional Neapolitan cuisine, it is expected to coat the aubergines and fry them before using in the casserole. You can do so, too and it is certainly very tasty! But I’d prefer to cut out a little the oil. I’ve started to make parmigiana a little bit skinnier.

Before using the eggplants in the casserole I’ve grilled them without using any oil! Great uh? 😉

Then put all together in a baking pan in layers like a lasagna and bake in the oven for 20 minutes!

This traditional dish can be served as a starter dish on a menu or as a side dish. Serve hot with a delicious focaccia. But cold is this parmigiana also very good!

  1. That sounds so yummy! I have only ever made it with the traditional breading on it but I like the idea of preparing it lighter.

  3. Many times eggplant parmigiana does seem heavy and if not done just right can be a soggy greasy mess. I like the looks of this much, much better!! Thanks for sharing with us at Throwback Thursday!
