Ingredients

Serves Tool

Serves To:USMetric
6   fresh thyme leaves, to garnish
2   eggs, beaten
2 Clove(clv)  garlic, peeled and roughly chopped
6   plum tomatoes, sliced
1/2 Cup(c)  light olive oil, for frying
2   medium eggplants
1 Pinch(pn)  salt, to taste
4 Tablespoon(T)  parmesan cheese, freshly grated
9 Ounce(oz)  mascarpone cheese
1 Pinch(pn)  pepper, to taste

Preparation

Preheat the oven to 400° F. In a saucepan, heat the mascarpone cheese for 1 to 2 minutes until smooth. Stir in half the Parmesan cheese and season well. Set aside. Thinly slice the eggplants. Pour enough oil into a large nonstick frying pan to cover the base. Heat until the oil is very hot, then add a layer of eggplant slices. You will need to cook the eggplant in 2 batches. Fry over a moderate heat until golden brown on both sides, turning once. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towel. Repeat with the remaining eggplant slices, adding more oil, if necessary. Arrange alternate layers of eggplant and tomato in a greased ovenproof dish. Sprinkle a little garlic, a little salt, and plenty of pepper in between each layer. Beat the eggs into the cheese sauce, then slowly pour over the eggplant and tomato. Sprinkle the remaining cheese over the top. Bake for 20 minutes, or until the topping is golden and bubbling. Garnish with thyme leaves and serve hot.
