Chicken Parmigiana

It all started a long time ago with eggplant!

The classic Italian dish of eggplant sautéed in olive oil and layered with tomato sauce and mozzarella cheese. Though the name means "eggplant in the style of Parma," a Northern Italian city, the dish originates in Southern Italy where eggplants, tomatoes, and olive oil are plentiful. In fact, real classic eggplant parm is made solely with mozzarella cheese—it doesn't necessarily have Parmesan at all.

Sausage and cheddar Meatball Appetizer (baked)

I decided on a individual appetizer plate for each guest for a dinner party I had last weekend. We watched the play off game with our appetizer plates, then moved to the dining room for dinner. I prepared Beef Bourguignon for the main with creamy mashed potatoes, crusty sour dough bread and a side salad. My guests raved about the entire meal!
