Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    1 sprays cooking spray
    1/3 cup seasoned bread crumbs, Italian-style
    1 Tbsp grated Parmesan cheese
    1 tsp Italian seasoning
    1/4 tsp garlic powder
    1 medium raw eggplant
    2 large egg white(s), lightly beaten
    1 1/2 cup canned tomato sauce
    1/2 cup part-skim mozzarella cheese, shredded

Directions

Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat a 9 X 13-inch baking dish with cooking spray; set aside.


Combine bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, Italian seasoning and garlic powder in a medium-size bowl; set aside. Remove skin from eggplant and trim off ends; slice eggplant into 1/2-inch-thick slices.


Dip eggplant first into egg whites and then into bread crumb mixture. Bake eggplant on a nonstick cookie sheet until lightly browned, about 20 to 25 minutes, flipping once.


Place a layer of eggplant on bottom of prepared baking dish, then add 1/3 of tomato sauce and 1/3 of mozzarella cheese. Repeat with 2 more layers in same order. Bake until cheese is melted and sauce is bubbling, about 10 minutes more. Slice into 4 pieces and serve.

  • I liked this recipe very much.... fairly easy. Even though it takes a little bit longer, I much prefered baking the eggplant rather than frying. My only suggestion would be to sweat the eggplant for 30 minutes with seasalt prior to preparing. Thanks for sharing! - 11/5/08
