  • Yield: 6 servings
  • Prep time:20 Minutes
  • Cook time:1 Hour, 5 Minutes


  • 1 large or 2 small eggplants, cut in 1/2 lengthwise (about 2 pounds)
  • 2 tablespoon(s) extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for the baking sheet
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 3 clove(s) garlic, minced
  • 1 28-ounce can(s) crushed tomatoes with basil
  • 3 cup(s) water
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) kosher salt
  • 3/4 cup(s) Parmigiano Reggiano cheese, grated
  • Croutons
  • Basil leaves, optional


Preheat oven to 450°F. Place eggplants cut side down on a lightly oiled foil-lined broiler pan or baking sheet. Roast eggplant until it is very tender and lightly browned on top and bottom, about 45 minutes. Cool.

Meanwhile, heat olive oil in a large Dutch oven over medium heat. Add onion and sauté 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook for another minute. Scoop eggplant flesh from the skins; discard the skins. Chop flesh roughly and add to the pan along with tomatoes, water and salt and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Top each serving with 2 tablespoons of Parmigiano Reggiano, croutons and basil, if desired.
