- cooking spray
- 1 cup chopped onion
- 1⁄2 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 2 garlic cloves, chopped

- 1 (8 ounce) can no-salt-added tomato sauce, divided
- 2⁄3 cup about 3 ounces shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese, divided

- Spread half of mushroom mixture in bottom of a 1 1/2-quart round baking dish coated with cooking spray. Arrange half of eggplant slices over mushroom mixture; sprinkle with 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Top with 1/2 cup tomato sauce and 1/3 cup mozzarella. Spread remaining mushroom mixture over mozzarella; top with remaining eggplant slices. Sprinkle with 1/8 teaspoon pepper; top with remaining tomato sauce.

This is delicious! It is similar in many ways to my eggplant parmesan recipe, but your addition of mushrooms makes it very tasty and I just love it!!! This is a great vegetable entree! Thanks for sharing. I forgot to mention that I served this with Chicken Parmesan. Very nice together! ~Sue
