My Quick and Easy Eggplant Parmesan (healthier too!)

eggplant parmisian pic 2I just love Eggplant Parmesan, but it can be pricey!  Once in a while I can find it on sale for only $.99, as was the case this week.  I bought one, and then remembered-they don’t last long.  So yesterday I sliced it up & prepared six meal-portions, which are now waiting for me in the freezer. ( a great work-day meal!)  I thought I’d share my easy method of preparing this tasty dish!

Eggplant Parmesan (Jilly B’s Version)

INGREDIENTS:

-one eggplant

-2 to 3 TB oil for frying

-grated Italian cheese (Italian blend/ pizza blend/ Parmesan/ YOUR choice)

-one small red onion, diced

-one can diced tomatoes with roasted garlic adn onions

-garlic  &  salt

DIRECTIONS:

-Slice the eggplant into 1/3-1/2” slices

-heat oil in large frying pan

-place eggplant in hot oil & season with garlic and salt

-let brown on each side, until tender and nicely golden brown

-While still in pan, generously top with cheese

-Remove eggplant from pan & place in oven on 350degrees

-Place tomatoes and diced onion in frying pan and saute until tender.  Season with salt and more garlic

-Remove eggplant from oven (5min. in oven is plenty-you simply want cheese to fully melt)

-Plate the eggplant & top with tomatoe & onion mixture.

-Top it off with a small additional sprinkling of cheese-sooo yummy!
