This has been a very difficult year for our family, we have lost too many loved ones. Last month my Nonna passed away from Alzheimer’s. Before the disease set in, she was, among many things, a wonderful cook. I’m talking off the boat Italian home cooking! One dish that will forever be remembered is her Eggplant Parmigiano! This is not your typical eggplant parm… Nonnas version had layers of fried potato in there and she didn’t bread her eggplant. Everything was fried up and oh so delicious! The only thing I changed was using fresh mozzarella instead of block. Perfect cheat day meal if you are working on eating healthier.
