This is a very nice change from the usual parmigiana. I didn't fry the eggplant though. I baked them. Thank you for the recipe. Read More

Tasty & easy but 1 slice does NOT a serving make. Very deceiving portion size since most folks would probably have 2 slices so I doubt that 1 lrg. eggplant will yield 24 slices. Nevertheless it as very tasty. I served it over spaghetti. I always bake my eggplant slices instead of doing them in a frying pan b/c they absorb cooking oil like a sponge and that just adds to the calories & fat. Read More
