Its What's for Dinner- Baked Eggplant Parmigiana

Baked Eggplant Parmigiana

1 3/4 cups Italian seasoned dry bread crumbs
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese (fresh, not from the can)
2 pounds eggplant, peeled and cut into 1/4 inch slices
4 large eggs, beaten with 3 TBSP water
8 oz. frexh mozzarella cheese, thinly sliced
48 oz Tomato and Basil Sauce   (I  like Classico because it has no sugar or other sweetners)


1. Preheat oven to 375*F

2. Combine bread crumbs with 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese in medium bowl. Dip eggplant in egg mixture, then bread crumb mixture, coating well. Arrange eggplant in single layer on lightly greased baking sheets. Bake 30 minutes or until golden.

3. Evenly spread 1 cup sauce in 9x13 inch baking dish. Layer 1/3 of the baked eggplant, then 1-1/2 cups sauce, 1/3 of the mozzarella cheese and 1/3 of the remaining Parmesan cheese; repeat. Top with remaining eggplant and sauce.

4. Cover with aluminum foil and bake 45 minutes. Remove foil and top with remaining cheeses. Bake uncovered an additional 10 minutes or until cheese is melted.
