NANA’S EGGPLANT PARMESAN COOKING INSTRUCTIONS
Start by making the Nana’s Marinara sauce.
Add Extra Virgin Olive Oil along with Garlic to a pot and brown and remove garlic.
Add pureed San Marzano Tomatoes along with fresh basil, fresh parsley, and S&P, and cook on low heat for 30 mins while you prep and cook the eggplant.
Peel Eggplant, and slice into ½ inch rings.
Make egg wash, for each eggplant prepare 2 eggs, 1 tbsp. Pecorino Romano Cheese and a pinch of parsley and S&P.
Dredge the eggplant in flour, shake off excess and add to the egg wash.
Heat up canola oil in sauté pan and drop a little of the egg wash into the oil to see if it is hot.
Once the oil is hot you can start frying the eggplant on both sides for about 1 minute or until brown, remove from oil and drain on a paper towel or a rack.
After frying all of your eggplants your Marinara should be done and you can now layer the eggplant into a baking pan.
Coat pan with Marinara Sauce, add a layer of eggplant, followed by a layer of Marinara Sauce and a layer of Pecorino Romano Cheese. Repeat this process for 3 plus layers or however deep your baking pan is.
Place in the oven at 425 degrees F for 15 minutes or until brown.
Put it on a plate, top with Nana’s Marinara, Fresh Parsley, and Pecorino Romano Cheese.
Serve with a side pasta.
You are done... Nice Job : )
