    1. Arrange eggplant slices on paper towel and sprinkle with salt to weep out moisture; let sit for 1 hour. Heat corn oil in a deep saucepan and fry eggplant slices in the hot oil until tender. Drain oil.
    2. Heat olive oil in large saucepan, add minced garlic and onions and saute. Add chopped tomatoes and stir. Simmer for 15 minutes and add fresh basil; set sauce aside.
    3. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Combine Ricotta con Latte with cream, grated Parmesan, and egg to make a sauce; set aside.
    4. Spread 1/2 cup of sauce in the bottom of a gratin dish and layer with the fried eggplant slices, Fresh Mozzarella, Ricotta mixture, and tomato sauce, until ingredients are used. Place in oven and bake until warm and slightly browned, 25 to 35 minutes. Garnish with grated Parmesan before serving.
