This famous pasta dish comes from Parma in Italy. Spaghetti tossed in a chilli cream sauce topped with cheese filled eggplants and the famous Italian tomato sauce. It makes a harmonious blend of flavours. When selecting eggplants, look for those that are heavy for their size, and have a smooth, shiny and deep purple skin. Toss the spaghetti in the chilli cream sauce just before serving, as it doesn't taste as good when it is reheated. Warm the dish in an oven if the eggplant slices have turned cold. Enjoy it hot and, of course, freshly prepared.

Eggplant Parmigiana was so cheesy from inside and crunchy from outside. Tasted so well with Paprika Spaghetti and Creamy Tomato Sauce.

The final dish was worth the effort preparing it, especially frying the eggplant parmigiana. The overall combination of chilli cream spaghetti, eggplant parmigiana and the tomato cream sauce taste great.
