Preparation

Cut the aubergine into thick slices, lightly salt them and leave them in a colander until they lose some of their bitter moisture. After an hour, cook under a hot grill and then set aside. Once cold, cut into cubes and, if necessary, adjust for salt once more. Take the tomatoes and blanch them in water for 10 seconds. Peel and remove their seeds, then cut them into small cubes. Now also dice the scamorza smoked cheese. Break the eggs into a bowl, beat vigorously, and add the Parmesan cheese, salt, pepper and parsley. Then add the aubergine, tomato and cheese. Mix everything well, then transfer the mixture into a baking tin lined with baking parchment. Bake at 200°C for 35 minutes. Serve lukewarm.

Tips
You might wish to try making this Italian aubergine omelette with - depending on your preferences - a nice smoked scamorza cheese made from cow's milk or even one made from buffalo milk.
Trivia
The tomato is a very common vegetable in Europe, with its use depending on the particular culinary tradition involved. The spread of the tomato across Europe, however, is due to the Spanish royal house and Christopher Columbus, who brought it back with him on his return from America.
