Ingredients: 400 gr "scamorza Reginella d’Abruzzo", classic or smoked, 600 g ripe  tomatoes,  peeled, seeded, drained, 500 g eggplants, 500 g potatoes, peeled and sliced, 500 g onion, sliced, 2 sticks celery, finely minced, finely chopped fresh oregano, 2 cloves garlic, minced, 3 tablespoons minced parsley, Olive oil, Salt & freshly ground pepper.

Preparation: Trim the stems and bottoms of the eggplant, slice them finely, salt them, and put them in a colander for about an hour, during which time the salt will draw out the bitter juices. Then rinse them and pat them dry. Preheat your oven to 360 F (180 C). Oil a large oven pan and put down the sliced vegetables in layers, seasoning each completed cycle with scamorza cheese "Reginella d'Abruzzo" cubes, minced herbs (celery, garlic, parsley, oregano), salt and pepper, a little olive oil. Finish with the minced herbs, sprinkle a little more olive oil over the top and bake in preheated oven at 180° C until the vegetables are fairly dry.
