|Fry slices of eggplant in oil and pat dry. Brown meat, sauté, onions & garlic. Add tomatoes and spices. Cut up salami & mozzarella. Slice eggs. Cook Rigatoni until al dente. Mix with sauce. Put layer of sauce in baking pan. Layer of eggplant dotted with Ricotta & Mozzarella. Layer of meat & eggs. Layer of rigatoni. Layer of salami. Repeat until the pan weighs 20 pounds (just kidding). The last layer should be the eggplant. Top with grated Pecorino Romano & cover the entire area with breadcrumbs. Bake in oven as if it was Lasagna. Eat and take a looooong nap!
