Eggplant Parmesan

September/October 2013

Your rating: None Average: 3.7 (153 votes)

Eggplant Parmesan doesn’t have to include layers of deep-fried eggplant and mountains of cheese. This healthy eggplant Parmesan recipe has just enough melty mozzarella between layers of breaded baked eggplant to be satisfying but not pile on the calories and fat. Don’t skip the step of salting the eggplant, especially if you want to freeze one of the casseroles. Salting helps to draw out extra moisture so the eggplant holds up better in the freezer. Serve with a salad of bitter greens tossed with a red-wine vinaigrette. This recipe makes enough for two 8-by-8-inch casseroles (four servings each)—have one for dinner tonight and freeze the other for a night when you don’t have time to make dinner.

Poorly edited receipe and bland result

Firstly some of the other reviews are strictly familiar to reviews of other receipes on other websites I.e " husband loves this receipe" and "this is now our favorite meal"'
, etc. I wonder how many of the other reviews are truly independent?
The receipe itself has no spices, and lacks any character to support it as a good receipe. The eggplant flavor dominates the eating experience which is unfortunate, given the possibility of adding garlic, or other flavor to compliment the eggplant . The instructions are just poorly written. What is the temperature at the end, after baking the eggplant? Where did the two baking sheets come from that are in the oven? Please read the receipe in full and edit it carefully before publishing. I think that process is called testing!
Overall I would give this a 4 out of 10.

Looks good when server

Delish!

I made this for my hubby and I, 2 weeks ago, but I with a meat sauce, because I had some in the freezer. I added some extra diced canned tomatoes though, to thin the sauce. It was so good. Next time I will make it per the recipe ingredients, but I expect it will be just as good.

Very tasty especially anyone who doesn't like eggplant

I made this a day ahead and I was worried about the breading getting soggy so I saved the extra seasoned breadcrumbs and added them as a topping. At the end of cooking, I sprinkled the breadcrumbs on top and broiled until they were browned. It was delicious! It did take a long time to put together, so I was happy that I made it ahead and could just pop it in the oven at dinner time.

tasty, healthy

Fresh alternative

Made this for the first time. We loved it! Even my husband who tends to be a meat and potatoes guy :). It is easy to make, directions were very clear and easy to follow. The flavors were fresh and just the right spice levels. My old fried fav has been replaced!

Fresh tasting, easy, plenty of flavor
