Melanzana alla Parmigiana (Perfect Eggplant Parmigiana)

Rating: Unrated
This classic Italian dish from Sicily is often simply referred to as 'Parmigiana' by the Sicilian locals. The richness and depth of flavor that you get from this authentic version is well worth the extra effort. Serve eggplant Parmigiana with nothing more than crusty bread and a green salad.

An easy, quick, and cheap vegetarian dish. Just enough pasta sauce to make a delicious eggplant Parmesan. No soggy eggplant here! Both the veggie and meat lovers in your life will love this recipe.

Eggplant Parmigiana Caponata

Rating: Unrated
I made this recipe to combine the tastes of eggplant parmesan and caponata, an Italian eggplant appetizer. It is quite rich and uses a lot of olive oil. It is best served with linguini or some other kind of pasta on the side. It is a bit sweet and a bit salty with a nice texture.

Baked Eggplant Parmesan

Rating: Unrated
Eggplant slices are coated with bread crumbs and Parmesan cheese and baked between layers of tomato sauce and mozzarella cheese for a filling Italian-inspired meal. Add fresh garlic and basil to taste. I use 2 to 4 cloves fresh garlic and 5 to 10 leaves of freshly harvested basil in the sauce. Fresh basil layered in one of the layers adds lots of 'fresh' flavor!

Air Fryer Eggplant Parmesan

Rating: Unrated
These eggplant Parmesan rounds are oil free and grease free, yet they are crispy and crunchy. All due to cooking it in an air fryer. They are good eaten right out of the air fryer or topped with marinara sauce and mozzarella cheese. Either way they are delicious.

Stuffed Eggplant Parmesan

A twist on the old standby! I like to use my homemade tomato sauce for this recipe, as well as using crushed croutons as the bread crumbs. A hint for shelling the eggplants - use a grapefruit spoon to start!

Eggplant parmigiana or eggplant Parmesan is one of the most popular and iconic vegetarian Italian dishes and this recipe is straight from Italy. Use ripe eggplant without seeds and salt them for 1 hour to remove the bitterness.

Quick Eggplant Parmesan

This eggplant goes well with some steamed green beans and French or Italian bread. Although the recipe calls for seasoned bread crumbs, you can use regular bread crumbs if you wish. Adjust the amount of red pepper flakes according to your taste.

Fried Eggplant Parmesan

My dad made me eggplant parm one night and I thought, Hmm, I wonder if this would be good as a fried dish. Take this as a State Fair-style spin on a classically iconic Italian staple. This dish is quick and easy, and something anyone can do. You may think teens are lazy, but they'll come to life making this dish.
