DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • Combine vinegar, oil, oregano, 1/2 tsp each salt, pepper and sugar.
  • Coat large cookie sheet with vegetable cooking spray.
  • Brush both sides of eggplant with vinegar mixture and arrange in single layer on cookie sheet.
  • Bake 15 minutes per side or until fork-tender.
  • Combine onions, garlic, and 2 Tbsp of wine in large non-stick skillet, stirring over medium-high head until onions are soft, approximately 5 minutes.
  • Stir in stewed tomatoes with their liquid, chopped tomato, basil, remaining 2 Tbsp wine, 1/2 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp sugar.
  • Bring to boil over high heat; reduce heat and simmer uncovered, stirring occasionally to break up tomatoes, 10 minute.
  • Makes approximately 2 1/2 cup sauce.
  • Note: In a pinch I have used canned spaghetti sauce, and it worked just fine.
  • Spoon one third of the sauce into shallow 2-quart baking dish.
  • Arrange half the eggplant over sauce.
  • Spoon half the remaining sauce over eggplant.
  • Sprinkle on half of the mozzarella.
  • Layer again with remaining eggplant, sauce and mozzarella.
  • Top with parmesan.
  • Cover with foil and bake 30 minutes.
  • Bake uncovered 15 to 20 minutes more, until bubbly.
  • Let stand 15 minutes before serving for easier cutting.
  • Enjoy!
