Parmigiana di Melanzane

  1. Thinly slice the aubergines removing the top and bottoms and place them in a colander. Sprinkle them lightly with salt and set them aside for 1 hour. This drains out any excess water and helps with frying.
  2. Meanwhile, make the simple tomato sauce. Finely chop 1 onion and sauté in a pan with the olive oil until translucent and soft but not browned. Add the tomato passata (pureed tomatoes) and a small bunch of basil torn with your hands. Add a pinch of salt and pepper, stir then let it simmer gently for 10-15 minutes. Set aside.
  3. Rinse the aubergines under cold water to remove the salt and pat them dry with a kitchen towel or paper. Lightly dust them with flour, shaking off any excess then fry them in sunflower oil for a few seconds each side, drain on kitchen paper to remove any excess oil.
