Parmigiana (Eggplant Parmesan)

Parmigiana (Eggplant Parmesan)

Alessandro Clemente1 comment

Some of the best Italian dishes originate in the southern part of the country. In the southern half of the boot the climate is much more mediterranean and well suited for growing fresh produce. In the Naples region, toward the bottom of the main part of the peninsula, there are a number of dishes for which to be proud. One of our favorites is their traditional method for preparing Parmigiana, or Eggplant Parmesan. The eggplant parmesan that you’ve had in the US is generally a far cry from what one would enjoy in Italy. Take a look at our recipe for authentic Parmigiana to surprise your guests with!

Pappardelle was first mentioned in writing at the end of the 13th century and became so famous in the Tuscan region that the writer Bocaccio, one of the three fathers of the modern Italian language, mentioned the dish in his famous work The Decameron. But he’s not the only writer to mention the pasta; several Renaissance writers sang the praises of pappardelle in their writing.
