Stuffed Eggplant Casserole
Date Added: June 11, 2009 Directions:
1. Brown the nuts in 1/4 of the oil in a (9") skillet. 2. Add the meat. Cook until brown and crumbly, (1 to 2 minutes). 3. Add the grated onion and the first measure of water. 4. Cook for two minutes more. Stir in the spices, one third of the tomato paste, the first measure of parsley and salt and pepper. 5. Set aside. Remove 1/2" wide vertical strips of peel all around the eggplants, leaving 1" between them. 6. Heat another 1/4 of the oil in a large nonstick skillet over moderate heat. 7. Cook the eggplants, tightly covered, until the flesh is golden and tender, (about 15 minutes), turning them over halfway through the cooking. 8. Cool on racks over paper towels. Discard the oil from the skillet. 9. Add the remaining oil and the chopped onion, garlic, bay leaf and peppers. 10. Cook, uncovered, for five minutes, stirring. Dissolve the remaining tomato paste in the second measure of water. 11. Add it to the pan. Cook one minute longer. Season with salt, pepper and sugar. 12. Set aside. Press open one of the striped sides of each eggplant to form a small cavity. 13. Spread the meat filling in each, about two tablespoons per eggplant. 14. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Spread the vegetable sauce on the bottom of a (12") baking dish. 15. Arrange the eggplants in it. Top with the tomato slices. 16. Cover with foil. Bake 45 minutes. Uncover. Bake 15 minutes longer. 17. Sprinkle with the second measure of parsley. Comments on Stuffed Eggplant Casserole Recipe:
