Wash the aubergines and remove the green part. Cut into slices about 1 cm thick and salt very well. Spread the salted aubergines on a wire rack and let the aubergines drain for at least 1 hour. Meanwhile, finely chop the onion and garlic. Fry in EVO oil and then add the tomato pulp. Add the salt and sugar and cook for about 20 minutes. Cut the mozzarella into cubes. Dry the aubergines well, brush with extra virgin olive oil and pass them in the flour, then fry them. Cover the bottom of a baking dish with a little tomato sauce. Create a layer of eggplant, season with the tomato sauce and then with mozzarella and cubes, grated Parmesan cheese and basil leaves. Repeat the operation until you have three layers of aubergines, distributing the ingredients evenly.
