Love this salt/pepper set. I found it at a local flea market and thought it would make a great wedding gift for my friend Jamie-- hope she liked it!
Got some goodies at the farmer's market last Saturday, so Sunday called for a delicious meal! Eggplant Parmesan with tomato/basil salad topper.
Couldn't walk past these tomatoes without buying them- so gorgeous!
My basil plants have yet to really take off- as has the rest of my garden- so I'm left to buy basil, luckily a big bunch like this is only $1 at the farmer's market, much better deal than the small packs in the grocery store.
Eggplant is such a great veggie- lots of different ways to use it, and I know it is somewhat ordinary, but I love eggplant parmesean.
First I sliced the eggplant about 1/2" thick, dipped them in raw egg, and rolled them in Italian breadcrumbs. Then I placed them in a pan with a thin layer of hot olive oil in it. Just a few minutes on each side- then take them out to drain on paper towels- salt while still hot. Once all the eggplant is done top each piece with a spoonful of marinara and a slice of fresh mozzarella then place the eggplant under the broiler to melt and brown the cheese.Pin It
