Goofy eggplant shaped pie, with ricotta and ham in the closed top - and...eggplant at the bottom.

That's pretty creative. What did you think of the combination of ingredients? I'm imagining that eggplant would go well with ham.

It is basically a standard Neapolitan calzone (ham/ricotta) with an open end. The eggplant idea came from the Starita "Racchetta", which is a tennis racket shape. They use vegetables in that one, including eggplant (although I believe eggplant is a drupe, not a vegetable).
