Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    1 eggplant
    2 c. Chunky Ragu Sundried Tomato and Sweet Basil
    3/4 c. grated parmesean cheese
    1c. Itallian seasoned Panko
    3T. Olive Oil
    1/2 box (4 servings amount) Barilla Farfalle
    2 tsp. salt (this will be rinsed away)

Tips

If you need to serve less than 6 people, get out your storage containers and place the unneeded portions for a quick and tasty meal later.


Directions

Wash the eggplant and cut the ends off.

Cut into 12 even slices. Place in a colander and sprinkle 2 tsp. salt evenly over the slices and let sit in sink for 15 minutes. After the eggplant has released some of its moisture, rinse the pieces thoroughly to remove the salt.

Preheat oven to 425
Warm sauce on low heat.
Cook pasta, drain, toss with 1 T. olive oil and set aside.

Coat each piece, both sides with Panko, and let rest for a couple minutes to ensure the crumbs will stay. While they are resting heat your skillet to medium high.

Add 2 T. Olive oil to skillet and place eggpland slices in quickly before the oil gets too hot. Brown both sides and remove from pan. Place on a paper towel to absorb excess oil.

Place 6 slices in one layer in a baking pan. Place 1 T. of sauce on each slice. Place a second slice on each piece in the pan. Add another 1 T. sauce to each stack. Sprinkle 1/2 T. cheese over each stack and place in oven. Bake until cheese is golden, about 12-15 minutes.

Place each eggplant stack on a plate with with pasta and drizzle 3 T. of sauce over each plate.
