I never knew eggplant could taste this good! This interesting vegetable is so hearty and meaty it can easily work for a vegetarian main course or a sunday night dinner. Everyone will be begging for more! See me make Eggplant Parmesan on the e how foods homepage and remember to like it!
Eggplant Parmesan
1 large eggplant Sliced lengthwise in ¼ inch pieces
2 eggs slightly beaten
¾ cup Italian bread crumbs
½ cup flour
¼ cup olive oil. Salt
Pepper
1 cup favorite red sauce
4-5 slices provolone cheese
¼ cup Parmesan cheese
Cooked spaghetti

Liberally salt eggplant and lay out on paper towels to wick excess moisture. Place flour, eggs and bread crumbs, each in its own shallow dish. Wipe excess salt from eggplant. Dust eggplant with pepper and dredge in flour, then dip into eggs and last into the bread crumbs to give a nice coating. Repeat with each slice of eggplant. Heat olive oil over medium heat in a chef’s pan, when hot; place each slice of eggplant into the oil for about 3 minutes on each side until golden brown. Turn oven onto to broil. Place eggplant into a glass baking dish and give each piece a spoon of red sauce, a slice of provolone and some Parmesan cheese. Put baking dish into oven and cook until cheese is melted and bubbly. Serve over spaghetti.

    To add, the only thing it lacks : is some beef.
