How to Make Franks Eggplant Siciliano

  3. Next, place a layer of the sliced eggplant in the pan (making sure to work it into the sauce).
  4. Then spread on another half-cup or so of sauce to cover the eggplant.
  5. Now SPRINKLE on some Italian sausage ... then some mozzarella...then some Romano...then some garlic powder...then some basil...then some oregano.
  6. Just try to get the SPRINKLINGS as evenly distributed as possible.
  7. At this point, ladle on another cup of the sauce, spread it around, and cover it with another layer of eggplant.
  8. Now repeat the entire process over and over again until all the ingredients are used, and top off the dish with a heavy layer of mozzarella.
  9. Now, preheat your oven to 350 degrees, season to taste with the black pepper, and cover the dish TIGHTLY with heavy-duty aluminum foil.
  10. All that's left is to bake it in the upper third of your oven for about an hour (or until the eggplant is soft and tender), then cool for about 20 minutes before serving.
