A tasty version of a high-fat favorite! Enjoy with whole wheat pasta for a healthy meal. Substitute vegetable bouillon grandules for a vegetarian dish.

The sauce on this was phenomenal. I think it was the bouillon (I used vegetable) that did it. My BF wanted to eat the leftovers for lunch, which is simply unprecedented! I dipped the eggplant in egg whites and coated with some panko bread crumbs. I figure this didn't affect the fat and calories too much. I also upped the tomato sauce by about 50% as per other reviewer's recommendation and added 1/2 cup low fat mozzarella. Served it with spaghetti. My only other suggestion is to cook the eggplant a little longer if you prefer. I'm going to make this again soon, to see if it will be as good as it was the first time! Thanks for a terrific recipe:D
