Being a huge fan of traditional Italian parmiggiano, I had a feeling I'd like this dish, but I wasn't prepared to go totally nuts for it. It's SOOOO...
Eggplant feuille is a perfect appetizer to serve during long summer days: it is light yet filling, delicious, and looks amazing!
Eggplants are summer's favorite vegetable, and paired with velvety tomato pulp and typical Italian cheese, this appetiser is the perfect mkediterranean dish.
Very easy to make, it is ideal to enjoy warm or at room temperature, although the melted cheese is an added touch of heaven in our opinion!

Cut the eggplant into slices that are 1.5/2cm high. Heat a grill pan with enough oil to coat the pan, and add 3 smashed garlic cloves (skin on).
Place eggplant slices into pan and allow to grill on both sides of the eggplant, until each slice retains a lovely bronze color.
Remove from heat, and place on plate lined with paper towels to drain excess oil. Repeat until all eggplant has been grilled.
Place eggplant slices onto a cooking sheet lined with parchment paper and roast in 120C (do not preheat oven) oven for approximately 1 hour.
While eggplant is roasting, finely mince 2 cloves of garlic, and allow to sauté in olive oil until lightly golden brown.
Add tomato pulp, allow to cook over low heat until excess water has evaporated and the sauce has reduced.
After one hour roasting time, remove the eggplant from the oven, and cover each slice with a piece of provolone.
Top the cheese with a spoonful of tomato sauce, then another slice of eggplant.
Top with another spoonful of tomato sauce, and a dash of olive oil. Broil until cheese appears slightly melted, remove from heat.
When serving, garnish with another bit of olive oil and a few clean basil leaves.
