Posted: Updated:

The Chef: Rickie Piper

The Restaurant: Casa D'Angelo Ristorante in Ft. Lauderdale

The Dish: Mediterranean Stuffed Baby Eggplant

Ingredients:

4 baby eggplants

1 medium onion, chopped

3 cloves garlic, chopped

1/4 cup fresh Italian parsley, chopped

6 Roma tomatoes, seeded and chopped

1 tsp. sun-dried tomatoes chopped

2 tsp. fresh basil, chopped

1/2 tsp. Kosher salt

1 tsp. black pepper

4 tbs. extra virgin olive oil

1/4 cup plain Panko bread crumbs

1/4 cup parmesan cheese, grated

4 beefsteak tomatoes

Method of Preparation:

- Slice baby eggplants in half lengthwise, then make more cuts in the middle. Add Kosher salt, extra virgin olive oil and black pepper. Roast in the oven at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes, until the eggplant is soft. When they're done, let them cool and scoop out the inside.

- Put the eggplant in a bowl, then add chopped roma tomatoes, garlic, onion, kosher salt, pepper, roasted sun-dried tomatoes, Italian parsley, basil, parmesan cheese, & Panko bread crumbs. Stir well, then sauté in a hot pan with extra-virgin olive oil, about three minutes. Set aside.

- In the eggplant shell, sprinkle kosher salt, parmesan cheese, and the stuffing. Add more parmesan, and some chopped basil and bake for another ten minutes at 350 degrees.

To Plate:

Make a bed of sliced beefsteak tomatoes, olive oil, and parsley, then top with the baked eggplants. Drizzle the pan juices over the top and it's ready to serve.

    Kindness and charm, unlike the people that live in Sin City, and i'm not talking about Vegas either. Things have changed in the town of Sin as in the motion picture while others have stayed the same. The cast of the movie told Deco what's new in part two.?

    This year's Miami Spice could use a phone book just to list the restaurants taking part, more than a hundred. Which means filling up on three courses for only $39 bucks. And at some places, that means saving a whole lot of money.
