1 medium size eggplant
1 jar favorite spaghetti or marinara sauce
1 tsp. garlic powder or favorite Italian seasonings
Salt and pepper
1/2 cup flour
16 oz. mozzarella cheese, shredded or sliced
1/2 cup fresh Parmesan cheese, shredded
1 2qt. casserole dish OR 3 individual ceramic dishes
Heat around 2 tbsps. oil in pan
Place flour in shallow dish, sprinkle with the garlic powder or Italian seasoning, salt and pepper and combine
Cut the ends of the eggplant
Cut into six slices
Dredge the eggplant slices into the flour mixture. By this time the oil should be hot
Brown each side for about 7-10 minutes until golden brown
I added a touch of olive oil into the bottom of the ceramic dishes
Add enough sauce over the olive oil and to cover the bottom of the dish
Add a slice of eggplant, mozzarella and sprinkle some parmesan cheese. Repeat one more time
I had enough to make three individual ceramic dishes
Dress with a sprig fresh Parmesan and serve
How yummy does this look??
I love Eggplant Parmesan. It's one of my favorite dishes to order at any Italian restaurant we go to. It took me about an hour to put this whole dish together and bake it. I had planned to serve this over spaghetti but I completely forgot. My favorite Italian restaurant here in town does it and it's so delicioso!
Did you have a good weekend? It seems to have gone by really fast for me but I savored every moment and pray you did too!
