You all know I have a thing about red sauce. I swear, I'd eat shoe leather if it were covered with a good marinara! But I'd much prefer a good eggplant Parmesan! You wouldn't know this version is lightened up because it is so loaded with flavors and textures.
Eggplant for this dish is traditionally breaded and fried. I baked it instead, used part-skim cheese and a made-from-scratch marinara filled with carrots, celery, onions and herbs. I'll post that recipe sometime soon. I served it with a mixed greens salad.
For my Weight Watchers friends, this works out to about 3 points a serving.
