Italian Eggplant

Yield 6 servings (serving size: 1 topped eggplant slice)
In this variation of eggplant Parmesan, instead of coating the eggplant slices in breadcrumbs, you simply coat them with cooking spray and brown them before topping the slices with a tomato mixture and cheese.

Ingredients

  • Olive oil-flavored cooking spray
  • 1 small eggplant, peeled and thinly sliced into 6 slices (about 1 pound)
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups canned whole tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon minced onion
  • 2 teaspoons dried basil
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 cup (2 ounces) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
  • 1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese
