Italy 2011 - Day 5 - When Sauteed Eggplant becomes your moring Rooster
The eggplant was cored, blanched in salted water. The insides were sauteed, the shells chilled. A simple tomato sauce was created as topping. Local "caciocavallo cheese" replaced your predictable mozzarella. Two day old sour dough bread was used to make fresh breadcrumbs. Herbs from the garden brought in the flavor.
