Baked Eggplant With Parmesan


This may be my favorite way of eating eggplant. Its crispy outer layer and warm, soft center make me feel like I am indulging in something deep fried and calorie dense, when in fact, it is quite the opposite. It is a straightforward recipe that requires minimal attention and provides maximum flavor.


You can dip these in heated tomato sauce if you want them to resemble the traditional fried Eggplant Parmesan, but I enjoy them as is!
