“I love eggplant and I decided to make a layered eggplant side dish without the breading that one typically sees with this type of presentation. I use a square baking dish for this treat.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Slice eggplant cross wise into desired thickness. (I cut it in 1/8 am inch slices / not critical).
  2. Place slices on paper towels and sprinkle with salt to help remove the extra moisture for about 15 minutes.
  3. Use more paper towels and press each slice to remove moisture.
  4. In a skillet, saute eggplant slices for 2-3 minutes on each side.
  5. Add a layer of sauteed eggplant slices to the baking dish, and
  6. place a dollop of marinara sauce over each slice.
  7. Then top each slice with a tablespoon worth of mozzarella.
  8. Repeat these steps until the whole eggplant is sauteed and layered in the dish.
  9. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and bake in a 350 degree F oven for 15 minutes.
  10. Enjoy!
