Like so many Italian dishes, there are different versions of the eggplant Parmigiana. Every nonna in Italy has her own recipe and if you look at the Italians in the United States, you also have many recipes there.
I prefer this version myself, but don't let that stop you from giving it your own twist!

The quantities are for 4 people if it is your only side dish; I made this for Christmas for 8 people as one of several side dishes and then we had enough.
That is also why the photo is a bit dark ... I will look for another photo from another time if I can remember :-) or the next time I'll take a new photo.
