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

Linguine with Anchovies & Fresh Breadcrumbs
Linguine with Anchovies & Fresh Breadcrumbs

We met Teresa in Messina who invited us into her beautiful Italian home & showed us how to make some of her favorite family recipes.  This Linguine recipe is one that she started making just to get creative in the kitchen.  The combination of the anchovies and the omega 9 fatty acids in the Extra Virgin Olive Oil make this a health boosting recipe.  If you're concerned about the linguine and want a more nutritious option, why not use Papa Vince Tumminia Pasta which is made with ancient grain and contains 6 times more fiber than regular pasta.
