    Chef Curt's Note:

    This year I finally mastered the art of growing eggplants. The trick I found was to keep them in pots on my porch where the bugs won't eat them as bad. Now that I have them growing good, eggplant Parmesan seemed like the next reasonable step.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      I slice my eggplants the night before (into 1/4 inch thick circles) and soak them in salt water. I hear it makes them softer and more tender but I suppose you could go straight to the frying pan with them too.
    2. 2
      Mix salt, pepper, garlic powder, and grated cheese into the flour. Beat egg into water to make an egg wash. Set up a standard 3 stage dipping station for frying the eggplant, Hand dip in the seasoned flour, then into the egg wash and finally coat well in the breadcrumbs.
    3. 3
      Start the pasta boiling in a separate pot while you start heating oil in a skillet to pan fry the eggplant. Add a dash of olive oil or butter to the spaghetti water to keep it from boiling over. The pasta can be just lightly cooked to al-dente stage, as it will finish off in the oven.
    4. 4
      Pan fry the eggplant about 5 minutes on each side until nice and golden and drain on a plate.
    5. 5
      Drain the spaghetti, and toss in a bowl with some olive oil. Also start the oven to preheat at 350 at this time.
    6. 6
      Get out a 3 x 9 x 12 inch casserole dish and spread a little marinara sauce to coat the bottom. Now add all the pasta in a layer and then layer on the rest of the sauce. Add the breaded eggplant slices in a layer on top of the sauce and finally top with fresh shredded Parmesan cheese.
    7. 7
      Place in the oven to bake for 20 minutes or until the cheese is nice and bubbly on top. Let it stand and cool for a couple minutes, serve and enjoy.

      This does have a nice fresh taste. I used cracker crumbs on the eggplant slices. Thanks for posting Chef Curt. Made for Fall PAC 2012.
