Eggplant (Aubergine) Persillade (Julia Child's)

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by BarbryT

From Julia Child and More Company. She suggests serving over prepared spaghetti squash (and suggests steaming the squash as the easiest method). I am persuaded by the reviews of Properly Prepared Spaghetti Squash to recommend it instead.

This was a winning recipe and something I will make again. I did not have the fresh parsley; however, did have fresh basil and with all the garlic I went ahead and substituted the fresh basil. It was served on top of recipe #162765 as suggested with a side salad for a delicious and healthy meal. Made for *Aussie Swap*
