Low Carb Eggplant (Aubergine) Parmesan

“I am on a low carb diet (South Beach) and I've found this recipe to be best in satisfying my craving of pasta with red sauce or pizza....god, I miss those days! But this is just as good and healthy too; a good dish for a vegetarian that may also be watching their carb intake. Serve this as a main dish (serves 3) or as a side dish (serves 6).”
