"Vegeterian" Aubergine

Today's recipe is specially dedicated to my dear friend Sofia. Because of the distance I was unable to be at Lisbon to celebrate her birthday today. 

You will need: (for 2 people)
white wine
1 aubergine
2 cloves of garlic
1/2 onion
2 carrots
1/4 courgette
red pepper
4 tomatoes 
grated Parmesan
extra virgin olive oil
salt and pepper

Cut the aubergine in two halves and, in each half, make deep cuts diagonally carefully avoiding to cut the skin. put it on a tray, with the fleshy surface upward, with a bit of salt and a splash of extra virgin olive oil and put it in preheated oven (180ºC) for approx. 25 to 30 minutes.

Cut the carrots lengthwise and then cut into small slices, chop the onion and garlic and let it cook in a pan with a splash of extra virgin olive oil. Add the chopped spinach into julienne, add a little white wine and cook. Add a few pieces of red pepper and then the chopped tomato. After removing the aubergines from the oven let it cool and then, with the help of a spoon, add the aubergine flesh to the remaining vegetables and sauté it a little bit.

Finally fill the two halves of Aubergine, top with some breadcrumbs and finally the grated Parmesan.

Take it again to the oven till the cheese is grated. 
Hope you enjoy it!
