You Can Cook Too 09 – Melanzane alla Parmigiana

Patricia shows you how to make a beautiful, vegetarian dish with aubergine, tomato sauce and two types of cheese.

She pairs it with Scarlatti’s – Sonata in G minor, commonly called the ‘Cat Fugue’.

Ingredients and instructions

6 aubergines

8 ozs. Mozzarella cheese grated

4 ozs. parmesan grated

Olive oil *, salt, pepper

Tomato sauce – small cup olive oil

2 cloves garlic

28 ozs. tin tomatoes (i.e. 2 ordinary size tins)

4 tabsps. tomato puree

Salt, pepper, sugar


Make tomato sauce by putting all ingredients in a saucepan and cooking for half an hour. Then add oregano. Slice aubergines and leave to drain for 1 hour. Fry in oil until golden brown. Layer aubergine, followed by mozzarella , then tomato sauce and parmesan in a dish. Continue until all the ingredients are used. Bake at 150 C. for 45 mins.

*This is very rich and I prefer sunflower oil.

For non-vegetarians chicken pieces, browned in oil, can be added
