How to Make It

Step 1

Season the eggplant with the garlic powder, salt and black pepper.

Step 2

Heat the oil in a 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.  Add the eggplant in batches and cook for 10 minutes or until lightly browned on both sides and tender.  Remove the eggplant from the skillet.  Remove the skillet from the heat.

Step 3

Reserve 1/2 cup sauce and 2 slices each eggplant and tomato.  Pour the remaining sauce into the skillet.  Layer the remaining eggplant, tomato and the cheese around the inside edge of the skillet, alternating eggplant, tomato and cheese, overlapping the eggplant and tomato slices slightly.  Arrange the reserved eggplant and tomato in the center.  Drizzle with the reserved sauce.

Step 4

Cover the skillet.  Cook over medium heat for 5 minutes or until the mixture is hot and bubbling.  Sprinkle with the basil.

    Good but time consuming

    While this recipe was tasty, it took too long to sautee the eggplant. Unfortunately, this recipe will not be a keeper because in my opinion it was too time consuming and I prefer quicker meals.

    Easy & Delicious!

    This recipe was a cinch! It made plenty for leftovers. I made some pasta for a side. I did end up using another brand of vodka sauce that had half the fat. Hubby and toddler gave it to thumbs up as well!
