Bertucci's Corporation, a casual-dining chain, owns a collection of full-service Italian restaurants that operate under the name "Bertucci's Brick Oven Pizzeria." During the early years of the 21st century there were roughly 80 Bertucci's restaurants scattered throughout the northeastern United States, each of which featured wood-fired brick ovens, which cook hotter than conventional pizza ovens, and served Tuscan-styled food, including gourmet pizzas, salads, soups, seafood, and pasta dishes. Founded in suburban Boston by Joseph Crugnale, Bertucci's expanded quickly during the 1980s and 1990s, growing from a single restaurant in 1981 to a sprawling restaurant chain by the mid-1990s. N.E. Restaurant Co. Inc., Bertucci's owner since 1998, adopted the Bertucci's name in 2001.

Roasted Eggplant



ROASTED EGGPLANT
Bertucci's Copycat Recipe

1 large eggplant
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or lightly grease. Slice the eggplant in half lengthwise. Cut each half into quarters lengthwise. Cut each of those in half to make two shorter quarters.

Place the eggplant onto the baking sheet with the skin side down.  Brush each piece with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Roast in the preheated oven until softened and golden brown, 25 to 30 minutes.  Remove from the oven and sprinkle with lemon juice.
