This rich eggplant stuffed with rice, ham, tomatoes and pine nuts is a treat. This dish looks elegant, but is simple to prepare and makes wonderful leftovers.

2(about 8 ounces each) small Italian eggplants
2teaspoons olive oil divided
1/2cup chopped onion
1cup cooked white rice
1plum tomato finely chopped
1tablespoon chopped ham
1tablespoon pine nuts
1tablespoon finely chopped Italian (flat leaf) parsley
1/2teaspoon salt
1/8teaspoon ground black pepper
1teaspoon grated Parmesan cheese

PREHEAT oven to 400° F.

CUT eggplants in half lengthwise. Score cut side at 1/2-inch intervals; brush lightly with 1 teaspoon oil. Place cut-side-down on baking sheet.

BAKE for about 15 minutes or until eggplant is browned and tender when pierced. Reduce oven temperature to 350° F; remove baking sheet to wire rack. Turn eggplant halves cut-side-up to cool partially.

COMBINE onion and remaining oil in large, nonstick skillet. Cook, stirring occasionally, for about 5 minutes. Stir in rice, tomato, ham, pine nuts, parsley, salt and pepper until blended. Cover; remove from heat.

Eggplant is often bitter so it MUST be salted and drained first. Sprinkle the cut sides with coarse salt and let it drain in a colander for at least half an hour but up to 2 hours before cooking. Rinse with cool water and pat dry with a paper towel.

SCOOP out pulp from eggplant, being careful not to break skin. Leave enough pulp inside shell of skin to form a lining; save the scooped-out pulp. Set shells aside.

ADD pulp to rice mixture; mix well. Spoon into eggplant shells. Sprinkle with cheese.

BAKE for an additional 10 minutes or until filling is heated through.
