Eggplant Parmesan (without frying!)

I love Eggplant Parmesan, it's my favorite recipe.  I usually prefer to prepare it at home instead of ordering in a restaurant because many restaurants use low quality olive oil.

This recipe will show you how to make a healthy and delicious Eggplant Parmesan without any frying involved!

I used Papa Vince's Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Papa Vince's Sicilian Cherry Tomato Sauce.  Make sure you use them too, to get the same great taste.

Recipe:

  • Preparation Time: 90 minutes
  • Active Cooking Time: 30 min
  • Yield: 4 servings

 Ingredients:

 Preparation

  1. Peel & Slice eggplants lengthwise, not very thin.
  2. Sprinkle with Papa Vince Sea Salt & let them set for at least an hour to remove the bitter taste  
  3. After the hour, rinse off salt with fresh water  
  4. Mix EVOO with Parsley Pesto
  5. Baste both sides of eggplants with the mix in step 4
  6. Place tomato sauce at bottom of a baking pan Add a layer of eggplants
  7. Add tomato sauce & sprinkle with grated cheese Repeat for each layer until you run out of ingredients.  
  8. Place in oven at 350 degrees for 30 minutes

Traditional basil pesto, a well-known and well-loved Italian sauce, was the inspiration for this recipe.
