Our version of this Italian classic comfort food is baked in the oven, not fried. It's just as delicious as the traditional version, but no frying makes it even more appealing because clean up is a breeze.

Ingredients

cost per recipe: $11.16

  • 2 egg
  • 1 1/2 cups seasoned bread crumbs
  • 2 medium eggplant (about 1 1/2 pounds), cut into 1/2-inch thick slices
  • 1 jar (23.5 ounces) Prego® Farmers' Market Classic Marinara Sauce or Traditional Italian Sauce
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese (about 8 ounces)
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

Instructions

  • Step 1

    Set the oven to 400°F.  Spray a rimmed baking sheet with vegetable cooking spray.

  • Step 2

    Beat the eggs in a shallow bowl with a fork or whisk.  Place the bread crumbs onto a dish.  Dip the eggplant into the eggs and coat with the bread crumbs.  Place the eggplant onto the baking sheet.

  • Step 3

    Bake for 30 minutes, turning the eggplant over once halfway through the baking time.

  • Step 4

    Spray a 2-quart baking dish with vegetable cooking spray.  Spread 1/2 cup sauce in the bottom of the dish.  Layer half the eggplant, 1 cup sauce, 1 cup mozzarella cheese and 1 tablespoon Parmesan cheese in the dish.  Repeat the layers.

  • Step 5

    Bake for 25 minutes or until hot.

    Loved this recipe! I only had plain bread crumbs, but added Italian seasoning to spice it up. Baking the eggplant first instead of frying it was so much less messy and healthier.
    Served it with angel hair pasta and caprese salad. Most definitely will make this again!

  • Loved it.

    Great but instead of bread crumbs, try flour. You may prefer it more coating the eggplant with flour.
