I love this recipe - reminds me a little of eggplant parmesan, but much healthier - it tastes like the eggplant is fried, but it's baked! (I increase the breadcrumbs and decrease the Parmigiano Reggiano, since it's too salty for me otherwise):

I like this spread. Do you use fresh or sundried tomatoes?

I use everything fresh, but I cook tomatoe, peppers and garlic with seasoning together, more like a sautee.

I would if I knew where to find it. Like I said, I've never seen it here in the stores.

Armanino brand pesto is the best I have found.
It is sold in the freezer section.
I like the jarred o.k. but the frozen is pretty close to fresh.The color of the frozen one is alot brighter too.

You are probably looking in the sauce section. It is a small jar and you can find it in the pasta section.

My wife Loves pesto, believe me if we had it here it would be a staple on my shelf, Barilla is one of my favorite products. Both pasta and sauces.

If you can't find it but your store carries Barilla you can ask to see if they will get it in.

Who knows...

I often dice some eggplant and lightly fry (evoo) it together with bean sprouts, onions and garlic.
