    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.

    You can use any nuts in this recipe but Chef Federico likes to use walnuts for their nutritional profile.  Walnuts have a higher level of both anti-oxidants and omega 3 fatty acids than any other nut and can help to lower the risk of certain diseases as well as support heart and brain health and healthy aging.
