I have always had a love for Eggplant Parmesan. I honestly often choose it over chicken in a restaurant. I have made it a million times at home and one day I saw someone suggest how to do it a little differently. I have seen the layered look before but still never thought to make it that way at home. Now I am not going to try to tell you that it is the pancake like stacking that makes a bit of difference in anything but the aesthetics of this dish. That being said it is the thin slicing of the eggplant which somehow does make this taste better. I know sounds silly but it did. Give it a go and see for yourself. Check out the Oven Roasted Tomato Sauce recipe for a great sauce to accompany the eggplant.
I have always enjoyed cooking since I was a child. Some of my fondest childhood memories take place in the kitchen preparing meals first with my mother, and then on my own.
