Eggplant with Pecorino – The Italian Series

Eggplant with pecorino, and grilled. So Yummy.

The Italian Series have been absent for a while. I have been cooking simple meals and some of them are in line for future postings, but I felt that this simple, yet delicious recipe, deserves to be posted now!

Eggplant is commonly seen as bland, but when properly cooked it is a delight. And that is the case of this recipe.

Easy and quick to make, and yet delicious and nutritious.

It can be eaten as a main dish, but I like to eat it as a side dish with a nice medium rare steak or a chicken fillet.

Hope you all like this eggplant with pecorino. Try it, smile, be happy! And stay safe
