RECIPES FROM THE RETRO HOUSEWIFE
MELANZANE ALLA PARMIGIANA (Eggplant Parmesan), Italian
Slice peeled eggplant, sprinkle with salt and let stand under a weight for 30 minutes, so as to extract excess water. Dip in beaten egg, dredge in flour and brown quickly on both sides in hot cooking oil or olive oil. In a deep casserole (buttered) spread a layer of the eggplant, sprinkle with Parmesan cheese, then tomato sauce. Repeat until all ingredients are used. On top put the thinly sliced mozzarella cheese, more tomato sauce and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Bake in a preheated oven (350°) for 30 minutes.
The above served with meat loaf and mixed green salad, plus a dessert makes a complete menu.

Many of these wonderful recipes are ones I stumbled upon quite by accident while sleuthing through the decades in my quest to assemble the world of the American housewife. RH
