Be prepared to prepare ahead for an amazing dish! This Roasted Eggplant Parmesan Recipe, you will love love love!
If you crave Eggplant Parmesan like I do, but not a big fan of the breading and frying, either. The shiny, purple, pear shaped “fruit” (Yep, it’s a fruit!) takes on a healthier note in this recipe. It’s a lighter version of the dish we have all come to savor.
Lighter, how? You might wonder. The eggplant, instead of being dipped in oil and breaded while frying in more oil, is just brushed with a bit of olive oil and then roasted. This is one of my favorites, for that no-fry reason alone…well and the amazing flavor of course! Off to our local Manassero Farms to do some “picking”! (well, actually shopping!)
I can’t think of anything better than quality time spent with family and friends. You won’t want to spend it in the kitchen cooking for them, and they won’t want that either! They’ve gathered in your home to enjoy Gr8 company. If you have some Italian Red Sauce pre-made, that’ll save time, too! Go ahead and use that as your sauce instead! This Roasted Eggplant Parmesan Recipe is easy to prepare, easy to assemble and just popped in the fridge or freezer for a do ahead dinner. It’s as simple as that!
If you have little extra time, make an additional smaller pan to have on hand for a busy weeknight. Better yet, give it to a friend who needs a little love!
And the leftovers, oh my gosh…even better!
