My husband had the idea to make Eggplant Parmesan, and I am not one to turn down his willingness to cook! I am blessed with having a husband who not only likes to cook, but one who is actually good at it too! I feel so sorry for those women (or men!) whose spouses like to cook, but are terrible at it!
Anywho... on to the recipe!
2 Cups Italian Breadcrumbs
1 Jar of Spaghetti Sauce
2 Cups Mozzarella Cheese
1/2 Cup Parmesan Cheese
1 Box of Angel Hair Pasta
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
Slice your eggplant in 1 inch slices and place to the side. Beat the eggs with 1tsp. Italian Seasoning, 1/2 tsp. of salt, 1/2 tsp. of pepper, and 1 tsp. of garlic. Now take your sliced eggplant and dip each slice in the egg mixture and then in the breadcrumbs.
Place the slices of eggplant on a baking sheet and bake for 8 minutes, and then flip them over and bake for another 8 minutes. While the eggplant is baking, put a thin layer of sauce in the bottom of a baking dish. Once the eggplant is done baking, place each slice side by side in the dish, cover with a thin layer of sauce and top with cheese. Bake for another 10 minutes.
While the eggplant is finishing cooking in the oven, prepare your pasta. When the eggplant is done, place some sauce on your pasta, and add the eggplant on top, and voila! You are done!
Though I was hesitant to try this eggplant, I think it tasted wonderful! If you decide to give it a try, let me know what you think!
