Labor, Delivery, and Birth

www.Scalinis.com/

This Italian restaurant in Smyrna, Georgia has had great fun with this recipe over the years and made some life long customers. Visit their website for recipe, more information, and to see their "Scalini's Eggplant Parmigiana Babies!" page!!!

Per Scalini's, "It was actually a few customers that began the legend of the eggplant after they all went into labor after eating the dish. We had a customer send us an excerpt from a book titled Healing with Whole Foods: Oriental Traditions and Modern Nutrition, which stated that the eggplant should be eaten sparingly by pregnant women because of its ability to begin contractions. That is why our promotion is for women that have reached full term. As we stated before, it was our customers that began this legend. We have had a lot of fun with the promotion over the years".
