Cut into pieces the thistles and remove the hard parts. Boil them in salted water (they should be easily penetrable with a fork). While the thistles are boiling prepare a simple and fragrant sauce made with tomato, thinly sliced onion, basil, pepper, a little oil and salt. Cook it so that it will be quite thick.

Drain well the thistles, take a baking sheet, it would be preferable to use a crock pot, and set up the parmigiana. On the bottom of the pot put a little of sauce so that the whole surface is covered.

So arrange a first layer of thistles, on this put cubes of mozzarella and ricotta cheese flakes, above these put the sauce and a generous sprinkling of Parmesan cheese. Make a second layer with thistles, mozzarella, ricotta, and parmesan sauce, and so on until you use all the thistles.

Conclude with a layer of sauce, mozzarella, ricotta and parmesan cheese and a drizzle of oil around. Bake at 200 -220°C for 30-40 minutes.

I tell you this recipe

When we talk about parmigiana immediately we think of the wonder that is the eggplant parmigiana, but in winter when the eggplants are not exactly in the proper season, we use those valuable products that the garden gives us.

So here we would like to propose the use of thistles. Delicious and cheaps thistles once abounded on the tables of the farmers, are now forgotten but we have to recover this lack. This version of parmigiana with thistles does not betray the expectations. Yummy and satisfying the parmigiana thistles will pamper you!
