Eggplant Parmesan.

I’m back! Its been a while since I’ve posted, due to the fact that this past month I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease (meaning NO more gluten). 😦 It has been a hard transition learning how to eat gluten-free, but I am finally starting to get used to it. I felt like making Eggplant Parmesan tonight & since flour is now a NO-NO, I opted for a healthier version of one of my favorite dishes. I decided to roast the eggplant instead of flouring & frying them. Same delicious taste,  just a lot healthier & gluten-free!

WHAT YOU WILL NEED:

  • 3 or 4 eggplants
  • Olive Oil Spray
  • Homemade tomato sauce or 1 jar of your favorite (make sure you add basil)
  • Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
  • Salt & Pepper

Preheat oven on 400 degrees. Cut the ends off of the eggplant & discard. Slice eggplant into 1/2 inch slices, season with oil, salt & pepper. Arrange eggplant on a baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes (flip half-way).

When eggplant is soft, remove from oven and set aside.

Lots of Eggplant 🙂

In a baking dish; layer sauce, eggplant & cheese :repeat: repeat: repeat: 
until you are out of eggplant.

Load up the cheese!

Bake for an additional 15 minutes until cheese is melted.

Time to Eat!

healthy & delish !! A perfect twist on eggplant parm. 🙂 Enjoy
