How to Make It

Step 1

Set the oven to 400°F.  Spray a 13x9x2-inch baking dish with vegetable cooking spray.  Place the eggplant, cut-side up, into the baking dish.  Brush with 1 tablespoon olive oil.  Season the eggplant as desired.

Step 2

Bake for 30 minutes or until the eggplant is fork-tender.  Spoon the sauce over the eggplant and sprinkle with the cheeses.  Stir the panko and remaining olive oil in a small bowl.  Sprinkle the panko mixture over the cheeses.

Step 3

Bake for 20 minutes or until hot and the cheese is melted.

Recipe Tips

  • For a heartier dish, try adding ground turkey!  Use 3 baby eggplant (about 1 1/4 pounds) and increase sauce to 1 jar (23.5 ounces).  While the eggplant halves are baking, cook 1 pound ground turkey in a 12-inch nonstick skillet until cooked through.  Stir in 1 cup sauce and cook until hot.  Top the eggplant with the turkey mixture, then add remaining sauce, cheese and panko mixture as shown above and bake as directed.

    The Best

    I have made this multiple times. It is much better than the fried version.
