Baking the eggplant gives this Italian dish a crispy texture without all the POINTS values from frying.

Ingredients

Seasoned breadcrumbs

cup(s), Italian-style

Grated Parmesan cheese

1 Tbsp

Italian seasoning

1 tsp

Garlic powder

¼ tsp

Uncooked eggplant(s)

1 medium

Egg white(s)

2 large, lightly beaten

Canned tomato sauce

1 cup(s)

Part-skim mozzarella cheese

½ cup(s), shredded, shredded

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat an 8- x 8- x 2-inch baking dish with cooking spray; set aside.
  2. Combine bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, Italian seasoning and garlic powder together in a medium-size bowl; set aside. Remove skin from eggplant and trim off ends. Slice eggplant into 1/2-inch-thick slices.
  3. Dip eggplant first into egg whites and then into bread crumb mixture. Bake eggplant on a nonstick cookie sheet until lightly browned, about 20 minutes.
  4. Place a layer of eggplant on bottom of prepared baking dish, then add 1/3 of tomato sauce and 1/3 of mozzarella cheese. Repeat with 2 more layers in same order. Bake until cheese is melted and sauce is bubbling, about 10 minutes more. Slice into 4 pieces and serve.
