Rome: Parmigiana Di Melanzane
Chef: Giuseppe Gaglione
Seasonal vegetable: Aubergine
This classic Italian pasta recipe requires a whole kilogram of aubergine – so the moreish vegetable is definitely a star player. Quality, fresh ingredients can really take this meal to the next level. San Marzano tomatoes are used, and many chefs consider these to be the best tomatoes on the planet. There are variations on this recipe in which the aubergine is substituted for meat. However, this aubergine recipe is the original Italian version.
