A good friend Deb gave me a couple home grown eggplants one year, and I never cooked an eggplant before, so I thought why not try making eggplant parmesean? It tasted awesome! :) Thank you Deb!

How to Make Eggplant Parmesan

Step-by-Step

  • 1In a large stock pot mix Hunts Spaghetti Sauce, 1 can tomatoe paste, 1 can water, Italian seasoning, garlic. Cover and simmer. Brown your meat, drain well then add to the sauce.
  • 2Meanwhile grate your Parmesean cheese, peel and slice your eggplant into 1/4 inch slices or 1/2 inch if you prefer. Dip eggplant into egg, and cover with bread crumbs Heat oil until bubbly, then fry your eggplant until golden brown on both sides.
  • 3Set eggplant in a casserole dish, lay a slice of mozzerella cheese on top each slice, set in a warm oven about 200 degrees until ready to serve.
  • 4Cook your pasta and drain well. Serve your eggplant on top of pasta and sauce. I usually pour some hot pasta sauce over the top of the eggplant to melt the cheese. Sprinkle with parmesean cheese. Serve and enjoy!
  • 5For you vegetarians out there, you can skip the meat, and use Hunts Sauce without meat, and replace with a veggie flavor!
