The original Italian name is Melanzana Alla Parmigiana, which translates to Eggplant with Parmesan cheese. But the popular name in Italy is Parmigiana and is meant to be vegetarian.

Variations made with breaded meat cutlets, such as veal and chicken, have been popularized in other countries, usually in areas of Italian immigration.
