  • 1 eggplant, halved lengthwise

  • salt and pepper to taste

  • ½ cup olive oil, divided

  • 1 pound sweet Italian sausage, casings removed

  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped

  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

  • ½ cup white wine

  • 2 cups Italian seasoned bread crumbs

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Scoop out the flesh of the eggplant, chop, and reserve. Season shells with salt and pepper, and coat with some olive oil; set aside.

  2. Heat 1/4 cup olive oil in a large, deep skillet over medium high heat. Saute sausage and garlic until sausage is evenly brown. Stir in the reserved chopped eggplant.

Stuff mixture into eggplant shells, and sprinkle top with remaining Parmesan cheese.
