Mrs. Pépin enjoys serving this pie at supper, but it can also be served for lunch or even for an unconventional breakfast.
This recipe is always a big hit!
Mrs. Pépin prefers to make this recipe in the summer when tomatoes are in season. Her guests are always blown away. If you have the time, you can sweat the eggplants. Sprinkle coarse salt on each slice of eggplant and let stand for 30 minutes to release any excess moisture. Remove any excess salt from each slice before cooking.
