    Use your favourite marinara sauce! This is so easy and good you'll wonder why you avoided trying it. From "The Sopranos" The one hour of prep time includes 30 minutes of draining.

      Worked for me! Some advice: My mom always sliced up the eggplant and put the entire stack of eggplant in one piece on a paper towel, with a heavy weight on top, like a cook book. She said that took the bitterness out of it...

      I can't tell you what a hit this was at supper tonight. My husband and I thought it tasted just like a Tuscan pizza, without the crust! Truly a (healthy!) meal in itself. I'll be making this often, Barefoot!

      My first experience with Eggplant Parmigiana was in Italy, and was it ever amazing! This recipe took my husband and I right back to Rome. Fantastic! I did not used nearly the recommended amount of oil for frying, but everything turned out great. Other than that, I followed the recipe exactly. Grazie!
