Romesco Sauce

I was under the impression that the Romesco Sauce was of Italian origin not knowing that it originated from Catalonia (Spain) and had been created to be served with fish. A simple sauce very similar to the Roasted Pepper Pesto that can be found in my blog. Similar way of making the pesto, just done differently.

Eggplant Parmigiana

My next recipe also uses this vegetable, simply to use up whatever balance I have bought that did not get used in this current recipe. More work? but Oh! so delicious.
