Thanks so much.

You are so very welcome! Great towns both, where your grandparents were from, amazing food there. I am glad you can appreciate true, traditional cucina italiana.

Take care.

I always salted my eggplant too but in the same show Mario Batali said that salting was always done to remove bitterness but that they found out that is not true now and is not really necessary. I am a creature of old habits so will probably still do the way I was taught. (BTW my MIL is from Naples..born and raised till they moved to the Bronx)

My grandparents met in NY and lived in Brooklyn. Unfortunately, I never knew them.

Cinzia.....I am talking about a homemade delicate tomato sauce, not the marinaras out there today. An Italian woman I know makes a lovely sauce that complements the eggplant parmesan she makes. It is not overpowered at all, and I know what you mean by that. I may just try your recipe. Thank you!
