Prep time

Cook time



  • 4-5 (approx. 1.5kg) eggplants
  • 3 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil (EVOO)
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 1L tomato passata
  • 6 basil leaves
  • 500g That’s Amore Scamorza Bianca, cubed
  • 150g That’s Amore Parmesan, grated
  • 125g That’s Amore Fior di Latte, sliced
  • Salt & pepper, to taste


  • Preheat oven to 200°C.
  • Wash eggplants and slice them lengthwise (approx. 1cm thick)
  • Heat the olive oil in a large frying pan over a gentle heat and fry the eggplant in small batches until golden brown. Place on kitchen paper to drain and allow to cool.
  • In the meantime, in a large saucepan drizzle some EVOO and add onion and garlic and sauté for a couple of mins. Then add tomato passata, season to taste and simmer for 30 mins. Once ready, add fresh basil.
  • Assemble the parmigiana starting with covering the bottom of a baking dish with a little sauce, then add the first layer by arranging the eggplant slices horizontally. Add some cubes of scamorza and sprinkle some grated parmesan and finish with a ladle of sauce. Repeat this process until there are no more eggplants.
  • Finish up laying sliced fior di latte and grated parmesan on top.
  • Bake for 40 mins at 200°C or until golden. Rest for 10 mins before serving and enjoy.
