Take the aubergines, cut them into slices, sprinkle with salt and leave them for one hour.


Then, wash off the salt and pat the aubergine slices dry with some absorbent kitchen paper. Coat the aubergine slices with all-purpose flour. Heat the extra virgin olive oil in a pan and fry them.


Next, prepare the sauce. Take a pan and put the oil, chopped onion and tomato sauce in it. Then add, the salt, basil and simmer it all for about an hour on a low heat.


Spread some sauce on the bottom of an oven-proof dish, cover with the slices of fried aubergine, add another layer of sauce, grated Parmigiano Reggiano and mozzarella and make two more layers, alternating the fried aubergine with the sauces, so that the last layer consists of tomato sauce and Parmigiano Reggiano.


Bake in the oven at 180°C for 30 minutes.
