I love eggplant (almost like zucchini) so I found this recipe the other day and made last week .
The mix of aubergine, parmesan cheese, tomatoes and basil is glorious!
Course is for those who love the eggplant.
I know there are many :)
My mom asked If I could make this recipe tomorrow!
I told her of course! One of the things I like to go her house al these last days my mom asking me certain dishes that she really love.
We have had a great time together watching recipes in books and old magazines:)

Meanwhile heat a griddle pan until very hot. Brush a few of the aubergines with a little oil then add to the pan.
Cook over a high heat through about 5-7 minutes.
Lift onto kitchen paper and do the next batch.
Tip: when frying aubergine slices youll find they will absorb any amount of oil instantly.
dont be tempted to add more. As they cook aubergines release their juices along with some of the absorbed oil.
When all the aubergines are cooked, lay a few of them in the bottom of the ovenproof dish. Then sppon over some tomatoes sauce.
Sprinkle with parmensan cheese and some basil leaves.
Add seasoning, then repeat this process wityh all the remaining ingredients.
