GETTING READY
1) Preheat the oven to 375°F.
2) Coat the bottom of a ovenproof dish with butter.
3) In a saucepan, saute together tomatoes, onions, carrots, celery, oregano, basil sugar and seasoning.
4) Put the lid on and cook over low heat for 30 minutes.
5) Take the tomato mixture off the heat and allow to cool.
6) Dredge the aubergine with salt and allow to sweat for 30 minutes.

MAKING
7) Pour off the liquid if any and rinse the aubergine under cold and dry over paper towels.
8) Using a hand blender blend the tomato mixture to a smooth puree.
9) In a wok, heat oil for frying and fry the aubergine slices until golden browned on both the sides.
10) Remove and drain over paper towels.
11) Place the aubergine slices over an ovenproof dish, in single layer.

FINALIZING
13) Dredge with Parmesan cheese.
14) Place in the oven and cook for 25 to 30 minutes.

SERVING
