    Don't get so defensive Somebody. Take a bit of this advice and
    a bit of that advice and come up with something positive. There are
    snobs in this group, cliques too, as in any other, I have noticed.
    Some of the snobs will offer no help other than to say something like,
    "Anybody who eats canned food is an idiot." Just as in real life,
    when you ask a question here you don't always get the answer you're
    looking for right away. Patience dude, and get rid of the defensive
    attitude - before I give you a real reason to be that way.

    This is a helpful group Somebody,

    My quick parmigiana recipe

    Ingredients:
    Medium sized eggplants
    A basic tomato sauce*
    Mozzarella
    Parmigiano reggiano or other hard cheese
    EVO oil
    Oregano
    Salt

    Guidelines:
    Slice the eggplant/s in 1/2" slices, take a non-stick pan and heat it, add a
    good pinch of salt and start putting the slices in the pan and letting them
    brown a little on both sides, then remove and proceed with the remaining
    slices, adding some salt to always have some in the pan. Grab a baking tin
    and line it with some EVO oil and let's start with the layers:
    - put enough eggplant slices to almost cover the tin, cutting some slices to
    make smaller pieces to fit in the holes between the slices
    - add tomato sauce
    - add sliced mozzarella
    - add grated parmigiano
    - finish with a little EVO oil
    Repeat until you use up all the eggplant slices, tomato sauce and
    mozzarella.
    I use to add oregano only on the top layer, directly on the eggplant thus
    under tomato and mozzarella, but one could add it between other layers also.
    Bake at 350C for 20-25 minutes or until the mozzarella melts.

    * basic tomato sauce: for te it's tomato preserve, whose ingredients are
    just tomatoes and salt, but one could cook one starting from fresh tomatoes

    Don't you put the slices on a large plate, put salt on them, and
    continue to layer them, then put another large plate and a heavy weight
    to drain the eggplants of all their liquid. Thats how we do it here.

    I did it for 30+ years then a friend asked me: "Are you sure you need to do
    that with nowadays low-sourness egglants?". I wondered and tried and they
    came out perfectly. My friend says that eggplants used to be sourer (sp?)
    and tastier than nowadays

    I made chicken parmesan yesterday and didn't do it "by the book", so
    as a below basic cook you might want to try my method at least once.

    Spread a layer of tomato sauce on the bottom of your baking pan and
    season it as you wish. Lay a single layer of thickly sliced eggplant
    over it (salt and pepper lightly - a little powdered/granulated garlic
    would be good too). Sprinkle your breadcrumb/grated parmesan mixture
    (which could be mixed with a little olive oil, but I chose not to)
    over that and bake (anywhere from 350 to 400F) until the eggplant is
    soft and the crumbs are lightly browned - plan on 20-30 minutes.
    Cover with thinly sliced or grated mozzarella and broil until melted.
    Done.

    That probably depends on the eggplant. It sounds quite plausible for
    commercially distributed produce. However if you hare growing good garden
    varieties it should have full flavor. It's been a few years since I grew
    eggplant but I remember noticing it had stronger flavor than storebought
    eggplant.

    A local restaurant has great eggplant parmigiana, prepared lightly breaded
    in bread crumbs and parmesan, pan fried, then sauced and covered with
    mozarella and broiled. I like it with a side of Italian sausage and their
    garlic broccoli.

    I don't know for certain but I presume they salt it first. Some cooks soak
    eggplant in milk but I don't care for it.

    It would depend on if a person is cooking a male or female eggplant as to it's taste. And no, I'm not making that up.

    How could you tell the difference? I've never seen anything to indicate
    there is such a thing, whether storebought or grown in my garden.

    Almost all the commercial -or- farmers market eggplant I've seen
    is not sour and/or tough enough to warrant the salt-soaking or
    double-cooking methods.

    But if you grew a "heirloom" eggplant, all bets are off.

    A well prepared eggplant parm is heaven. I haven't attempted it yet.

    But you are misinformed about eggplant/aubergine biology and
    reproduction. Eggplant is not one of those plants that has separate male
    and female plants, or even, separate male and female flowers. ALL eggplant
    flowers are bisexual and contain both male and female organs. The male
    bit fertilises the female bit to form a fruit.The fruit
    and the seeds in it, are genderless.

    IOW there are no male and female eggplant fruits.

    http://www.ehow.com/info_8565118_mal...le-plants.html

    Brief summary;

    "There are two types of flowers: complete, or perfect, and incomplete,
    or imperfect. Perfect flowers contain both male and female floral parts in
    one flower, while imperfect flowers have either male or female floral
    parts but not both. <...>Examples of vegetables with perfect flowers are
    tomatoes, peppers, eggplant and artichokes. Plants with perfect flowers
    are not male or female."

    I don't take advice, I give it... stay out of dark alleys.
    Especially, if you have hot eggplant parmesan.

    Thank you for the recipe. My faith in humanity may be restored... I
    still have the eggplant.

    Maybe I will just spray a pan with canned(ola) oil and fry it? And
    use the rest of the bottle of Barilla spaghetti sauce.

    I live alone and cooking seems kinda pointless sometimes just for one.


    Sorry to have bothered you. Seemed like a good idea at the time.
