Baked Eggplant Parmigiana

One of my favorite Italian meals has always been Eggplant Parmigiana but I never made it because I hated frying the eggplant. Using so much oil, the mess splattering oil makes, eating fried food and the time it takes to fry in small batches. One day I decided to try baking my eggplant instead of frying and I’ve never gone back! So much easier, quicker and healthier. It also taste better in my opinion and my family loves it. It comes together the same way traditional Eggplant Parmigiana does but the small change of baking vs frying makes such a difference. I hope you and your family enjoy this recipe as much as my family does.
