Italian Flag Colors, With Eggplant


Another posting experiment from my iPhone.

Dinner two nights ago was Eggplant Parmesan. Between then and now we acquired quite a few red peppers, a pound of mushrooms, and some spinach.

I sautéed the fresh veggies, then pushed them aside and added the leftover bits of breaded eggplant cubes and hot Italian sausage. A smothering of Mezzetta’s pizza sauce (it’s my new favorite), a good amount of Provolone cheese on the eggplant, and shredded Parmesan on the new veggies, a few minutes of heat, and we were ready to dive in.

We ate ourselves silly and there is still sufficient left for another meal. As is often the case, this dish improves with age – up to a point!

    I often wonder if it’s a coincidence that those are the colors of the Italian flag. Like a pizza margherita.

    I think I might try this dish but substitute yellow squash or zucchini for the eggplant.

      I did good-sized chunks, with the whole flour-egg-seasoned crumbs thing. At sauce time, the crumbs soaked up more of the sauce than I expected, so had to open a second jar to moisten it more. Last night, I added even more sauce. I’m really tickled with it because it isn’t as heavy as others – very light.


  4. How do you say Yummy in Italian??? 🙂
