The other night, my best friend from home, Emmie, and I drove up to her family's mountain house for an evening of cooking and movie-watching (and wine drinking, of course). For dinner, we whipped up this dish, adapted from a recipe by David Rocco—it was loaded with eggplant, spicy Italian sausage, mozzarella, and plum tomatoes. After finishing our meal (and polishing off a bottle...or more...of red wine :D), we sat down with a plateful of Emmie's homemade tiramisu and had ourselves a little movie marathon. It was a fantastic evening and I'm looking forward to more this winter. I'm also pumped to try out some more recipes from Rocco's cookbook, Made in Italy.
