Melanzane al Forno (baked eggplant)
Several years ago I had to "downsize" my large cookbook collection. I cut out some recipes from an old 1970s cookbook, selecting recipes that I thought I would like to make in the future. About four years ago I started making this recipe and have had many compliments on it. It is a meatless dish, melanzane is Italian for eggplant. The Italian phrase "al forno" means "at/from the oven." Unfortunately, I do not have the recipe creator's name.
The recipe calls for mozzarella cheese, I used it on Clint's since he is doing a version of the Adkin's Diet. On mine I used fresh grated Parmesan cheese. Clint is a "meat and potatoes" guy but he loved this dish.
