A Simple Aubergine Parmigiana

As you all know I am a huge fan of the Cirio products.  I use them all the time.  When it comes to anything to do with tomatoes or tinned beans, I always buy Cirio.  That's because I know that they are always going to be really good.  A lot of people don't realise that the flavour of the tomatoes they choose to use in a dish can mean the difference between a dish being so/so and a dish being wow! 
Which is strange really because if you choose to use so/so products when you are cooking, why wouldn't you expect the end result to be so/so as well!   A good quality tinned tomato can make a huge difference to the taste, consistency and quality of any dish. in my opinion Cirio is one of the highest quality brands of tinned tomatoes on the market, produced lovingly in Italy for an authentic Italian flavour.
The rich and flavoursome taste of Cirio means that it should always be the tomato brand of choice when it comes to cooking. Additionally, the health benefits of tomatoes cannot be disputed . . . tinned tomatoes in particular contain more Lycopene than fresh tomatoes, which is good for the heart and has been proven to reduce the risk of cancer. 
That is why when I was recently asked by Cirio, would I like to try out a new recipe from their new cookbook, I put my hands in the air and said, yes, yes, yes!  
This is a flavoursome, home cooked dish bursting with flavours from Italy! It's simple to make, full of flavour and a real crowd-pleaser; Oh and it is a great meal for a meat-free Monday too!
It is also considerably lower in calories than the original version in that there is NO frying involved.  You simply slice the aubergine (eggplant to you North Americans) and grill them on both sides briefly.   

The grilled vegetable is then layered in a baking dish with some of that delicious Cirio Pasatta (which has been mixed with a bit of olive oil and seasoned with a bit of salt), some sliced good mozzarella cheese and some fresh basil leaves.  I used their Passata Rustico.   It is a wonderfully thick and textured Passata that you can actually pick up with a fork!  I could eat it with a spoon myself. Its that good.
Popped into the oven and baked for a brief time, the end result is a delicious dish that is not only delicious but actually quite good for you.  All you would need on the side is some lovely fresh crusty bread (Italian of course!) to mop up all of those lovely tomatoes and perhaps a salad!
